Email Introduction Template
A personal email introduction among an LNC alum, a prospective applicant, and a member of the LNC team is the easiest and most effective way to build a connection. We encourage you to reach out to promising candidates in your network to share a bit about your LNC experience and provide links to program details. Suggested language and links are included below. Feel free to adapt and to make this your own!
If you prefer, instead of doing an email introduction you may share some or all of the links below with candidates and encourage them to complete the Interest Form if they decide they would like more information.
Sample Email Intro
Dear [[Prospect First Name]]:
I’m writing to let you know about Leadership North Carolina and my participation in LNC’s Core Program. By sharing a bit about my LNC experience, I hope to encourage you to apply for next year’s class. With this email, I’m also introducing you to LNC’s Program Director, Kelly Turner (firstname.lastname@example.org). Kelly and the LNC team can share updates and help guide you through the upcoming application process. The application will be live June 1 – June 22.
During my LNC experience, I spent 2.5 days each month from October through May connecting with a diverse group of leaders from across the state. We visited six different locations, from the mountains to the coast, and learned about the history, challenges, and opportunities facing the state of North Carolina. We participated in sessions on government, economic development, education, health and human services, and the environment. We took part in powerful and engaging simulations, heard from experts on multiple topics, and engaged in lively and informative discussions, all with a focus on turning our knowledge into action for the benefit of our state.
Through LNC I formed strong and lasting relationships with a unique group of leaders from a variety of backgrounds and sectors and learned powerful ways to have an impact on building an outstanding future for North Carolina. As an alum of LNC I’m now part of a statewide network of almost 1400 individuals who care passionately about our state.

I hope that you will consider applying for this exceptional and prestigious program and that you’ll use me as a resource. Be sure to let me know if I can help in any way!
