Institute COVID-19 Response

We know you have been wondering about the status of the Leadership Institute now that our world has changed seemingly overnight. Recently, the NWLLI staff and faculty met by conference call to assess the feasibility of holding the Institute in June. Still 9 weeks away, we face many unknowns about the progression of COVID-19 and the removal of the important restrictions now put in place in the attempt to slow the spread of the virus.

Therefore we have decided to postpone the Institute to a tentative NEW date of May 5-8, 2022, still at the Harrison Beach Hotel at Harrison Hot Springs, British Columbia. Months of planning have gone into bringing you an innovative and fun small group learning experience. Our attendance is near capacity and we are all excited to engage with you in one of the best trainings offered by Lions. Our original full faculty is committed to be there with you. Therefore we hope this new date is open on your calendar. This is six months away! We all hope our way of life safely returns by that time. However, if there is still a threat please know that we will have to cancel the Institute. Your safety is of paramount importance.
The new registration deadline is February 1, 2022.

If you are a student who has registered to attend, please reach out to Registrar Art Weatherly at, or with your intent to attend, or not to attend, the Institute. If you cannot, or choose not, to come on September 24-26, your full deposit will be mailed back to you.

We hope to hear back from you either way very soon. Until then, stay safe and follow the guidance we all hope returns us to our active lifestyles.
