EPFP is an immersive professional and leadership development experience. With the
understanding that the maximum benefits are achieved through full participation by the EPFP
Fellow in all retreats, virtual meetings, the national conference in the spring, and the
legislative day/graduation event, the undersigned EPFP Fellow and EPFP Fellow's supervisor
hereby agree that the Fellow will participate in all meetings, retreats, the national conference,
and the legislative day/graduation event. The supervisor will be notified if the EPFP Fellow
misses more than 1.5 days of EPFP programming which is the allowable amount of excused
absence for the year.
At the fall, winter, and spring retreats, Fellows will be expected to be fully present and may be
unable to access email for extended periods. Therefore, the supervisor and Fellow should plan in
advance to avoid pressing assignments that require Fellows to be accessible on the retreat
The EPFP Fellow and EPFP Fellow's supervisor understand that these conditions are requisites
for the EPFP Fellow to receive a certificate of completion of the program and access to networks
and resources available to EPFP alumni.
