Registration is on a first come, first served basis and will close when we reach class capacity. When you register, place the session dates and times on your business calendar as we expect participants to attend all 6 sessions.

Leadership Knoxville strives to provide exceptional programming and service, and your experience is our top priority.  Our team works months in advance to plan and prepare for each participant  and program day.

We realize that life happens and sometimes it requires a change of plans.  Please take a moment to review our program deferral policy.

  1. Any request for an Introduction Knoxville program deferral will be considered up to 14 days before the program begins.
  2. Registered participants are only allowed one class deferral and participation must occur within one calendar year from registration.  Please keep in mind that we offer the Introduction Knoxville program three times per year – Winter (mid January – February);  Spring (mid-March to April); and Fall (last August – October).  Any request beyond a calendar year must be approved by the board of directors.
  3. Tuition is non-refundable; however it is transferable to an alternate participant of the payors choosing.
