Thank you for your interest in applying to the Leadership Development Program of New England! Below you will find information regarding application requirements, tentative schedules, safety requirements, tuition, continuing education, and application interviews.

The Leadership Development Program Team is dedicated to your health and safety. Currently, the LDP Cohort 7 is scheduled as a hybrid model program with face-to-face and virtual meetings. All face-to-face sessions are set to take place in Concord, NH. Our team is constantly evaluating public health policies and guidance from the CDC, the New England region, and our internal organizations. In the event we are no longer able to conduct face-to-face meetings due to safety concerns, at any point before or during the program, we will conduct all meetings in a virtual format and tuition costs will be reevaluated accordingly.
