Note: miLEAD staffs projects as they come up throughout the year, so timing is flexible. Whenever a new project comes up, we ask our pool of consultants who's free and go from there. Once a consultant is in our staffing pool, we'll continue to offer them project roles until they ask to be removed from the list, so everyone gets several chances to find a project that fits their interests and availability!
