The Application Process
Applying to Leadership SLO is a process that requires your time and thought, and, if you are employed, your employer’s agreement. Please be assured that if you are accepted to Leadership SLO, we will do everything possible to make sure that tuition payments are not an obstacle. No one in the interview is aware of scholarship requests.
1. The Application
Sorry to say we’ve had too many troubles with writable PDFs so we’re going old-school. Please just download the Word docs to fill out your application. You may need to “enable editing” after downloading.
2. The Interview
Following acceptance of your complete application package and most likely after October 4th, you will be asked to sign up for your group interview with a group of Leadership SLO alums.
3. Submitting your Application
To submit your application please send the following as attached PDFs to Sandi@SLOChamber.org.
PDF is the only format accepted.
Applications consist of 3 separate documents:
a. The Application
Please save your PDF FirstNameLastName2020APP
b. The Acceptance & Attendance Agreement, Tuition Agreement, Tuition Worksheet, race and ethnicity form (the race and ethnicity form is optional)
Please save your PDF FirstNameLastName2020SUPP (for Supplemental)
c. Letters of Recommendation may be scanned and submitted as your third document.
Please save your PDF FirstNameLastName2020LOR (for Letters of Recommendation)
Alternately, letters of recommendation may be mailed directly to:
Sandi Sigurdson / Leadership SLO
895 Monterey St. SLO, CA 93401
Only 2 letters of recommendation are accepted. In the event that more are submitted, the executive director will choose the 2 presented to the interview committee.
Late applications will not be accepted
And despite how harsh those instructions sound, you can call Sandi with any difficulties: (805) 786-2765
