I understand the purpose of Leadership South Carolina. If selected I will devote time and resources necessary to complete the program. I understand that even though emergencies arise, the Orientation session is mandatory and any participant missing this session will be removed from the class. I also understand that any participant missing more than one other session will not graduate. I understand that there are no exceptions to this policy. I understand that if I withdraw from the program for any reason, no portion of my tuition will be refunded. I further understand that Leadership SC extends beyond the nine-month program into a lifetime of opportunity for positive involvement in the future of our state. The information included in this application is an accurate representation of my background and experience. My employer is aware of my application to Leadership SC and will allow and support my participation if I am selected. I understand that I represent my organization as well as Leadership SC, and therefore will conduct myself accordingly with respect to others. Conduct unbecoming to our program will result in immediate expulsion without tuition reimbursement.
