Being part of Tenants & Neighbors Tenant Association Leadership Program requires
that you make a firm, long-term commitment to the program. In addition to the
intensive training, participants are expected to serve as a TA president advisory
committee and assist T&N staff with developing new tenant associations in your
community.
Below is a list of dates for the trainings:
Transportation, meals and room are provided free of charge for accepted candidates.
Breakfast and lunch will be provided for the bi-weekly Saturday trainings.
Participants must participate in the weekend retreat orientation, and all training
sessions. If a participant misses more than one of the scheduled meetings, they will
meet with the program coordinators to discuss whether or not they can continue in the
program.
If you can make a firm commitment, please complete this application by signing
below. If your application is accepted, you will be contacted by a T&N staff member to
set up an appointment for a one-on-one meeting with the TAPLP coordinators.
Thank you for your interest in the Tenants & Neighbors Tenant Association President
