participant. This is LMC's leadership laboratory, and our participants find that
the benefit that they receive from it is usually directly related to the effort
that they put in. Some class project participation is mandatory for the
participant to graduate. Over the LMC year, average project-hours per class member: 40.
On our class days, we occasionally have tours and meet at a variety of facilities. If a person is accepted to the class and has need for particular reasonable accommodations for participation, please let the LMC Executive Director know.
