Class Information

Community Leadership Alliance meets the last Wednesday of the month January through June. Classes are located throughout Grant, Iowa and Lafayette counties. Tuition for the course is $375.00 per participant. This cost covers instruction, materials, meeting spaces, meals, and refreshments. Participant tuition is subsidized through generous donations, sponsorship, and grants; from our local businesses and community supporters. If the cost of tuition is a barrier, financial assistance is available.  On the 2018 CLA Class Registration, there is a scholarship question, please select ‘Yes’ if financial assistance is needed. The CLA is open to the all. However, space is limited to 32 participants a year and the class fills up quickly, so early registration is advised.

If you are interested in participating in the 2018 class, please click on the CLA 2018 Class Registration tab, located under Class Information at the top of the page.
