 The 2023 Schedule (updated July 2022) 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.
