The sponsoring host/partner provides:
- Meeting space
- Audiovisual equipment
- Flip chart and markers
- Meals, snacks, and breaks
- Any necessary marketing
- Travel and pre-paid accommodation expenses for faculty
Additionally, to best serve a combined audience of clergy, development professionals, students, and others, we request a detailed registration list of all participants. This list should specify if each is a single participant or part of a small team, their current role, etc.
Lake Institute provides:
- On-site instruction
- Training materials
- PowerPoint instruction materials
Insights, an e-newsletter produced by Lake Institute, is provided on a subscription basis, in addition to supplemental materials to best enhance the teaching/training environment. Seasonal webinars and topic-based instruction options exists for those who want to pursue online community building and additional coursework before or after the time of the class.
The cost of the program is $3,000 per day for weekdays, $3,500 per day for Saturdays, or $3,500–$4,500 for a tailored program. Program costs will be based on an assessment of key objectives, coupled with the necessary resource and reading materials for each participant. The program is tailored to meet the needs of the host entity, but we request consideration for an average minimum of six core hour time blocks of instruction time, with separate time for lunch, breaks, and administrative needs.
The $50 workbook fee/participant fee is based on the number of enrolled individuals, and materials are always provided at cost. Workbooks are ordered only for contractual programs and are not provided to other team members or interested individuals due to course participation requirements.
Core seminar materials, Lake Institute informational brochures, and a checklist for potential participants can serve as tools for increasing awareness about the proposed seminar. We believe distribution of these materials, communication with local mailing lists, website postings, and outreach to potential participants will be required for overall success.
