PPAI will provide training and meals at the event. I understand that if selected to participate in 2019 L.E.A.D. I am expected to cover any additional travel expenses. I will also participate in all training webinars, conferences calls and work with my state team to set up appointments. I understand that participation on a regional level does not guarantee my acceptance to the L.E.A.D. program. I understand that my participation in previous L.E.A.D. events does not guarantee my acceptance to participate this year. I understand that participation is not transferrable. If for some reason I am unable to participate, PPAI will have full discretion to select another qualified applicant.
