NORMAN — Applications will be available Monday for the 2014 Leadership Norman class.

Leadership Norman, a program of the Norman Chamber of Commerce, offers participants an opportunity to be part of a distinct leadership group. The program, for residents and area professionals, will accept applications through 5 p.m. Aug. 16. A selection committee will review the applications and select the 30-person class in late August.

Leadership Norman is open to anyone who either works or lives in Norman. Co-chaired by Jen Tregarthen, Sam Noble Museum, and Brian McPherson, Shelter Insurance, the class consists of 16 interactive sessions, spanning an eight-month period, ending with graduation in April.
