 The 2024 Schedule (updated July 2023) is Now Available

Participating in a Lead New Jersey (LNJ) class requires a shared commitment of time, attention, and finances from both the Fellow and his or her employer. However, the benefits reaped by the individual and their company/organization are priceless.  

The deadline to apply for LNJ's 2024 class is Monday November 20th.  All applicants must fill out the form in it's entirety and include a $100.00. application fee.  Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis beginning in September 2023. The induction ceremony for the 2024 class, held in conjunction with graduation of the 2023 class, is Wednesday December 6th in Trenton, NJ.
