Leadership Okla. accepting applications

NORMAN — Leadership Oklahoma, a statewide leadership program in its 26th year, is now accepting applications for its 2013-2014 class.

The organization accepts a class of 52 members each year.  Criterion for selection includes demonstrated leadership on the part of applicants in their communities and state. 

The program is designed to be a series of issue-oriented forums and experiences, which are based on the belief that knowledge is a key element and prime motivator of leadership.  It consists of an orientation session, a mandatory two-day retreat and eight monthly two-day sessions.  Classes are held in various locations across the state that best relate to the issues being discussed.

“Leadership Oklahoma and its graduates are making a positive difference in Oklahoma,” said Toney Stricklin, Chairman of TDRS, LLC, in Lawton and Chairman of Leadership Oklahoma.  “By learning about the issues that impact our state socially, economically and environmentally, class members are motivated to fulfill our mission of creating a dynamic network of leaders whose increased awareness and commitment to service will energize Oklahomans to shape their state’s future.”

Approximately 1,300 leaders have participated in the program and remain active in contributing to Oklahoma’s strength and vitality. 

“We often refer to Oklahoma as the ‘Great’ State of Oklahoma.  As a result of my Leadership Oklahoma experience, I now have a true understanding of what is meant by ‘Great,’ and a host of professional and personal relationships that will last me a lifetime,” said Brent Kisling, LOK graduate and Executive Director of Enid Regional Development Alliance. 

Applications may be downloaded from the Leadership Oklahoma website at www.leadershipoklahoma.com.  Completed applications must be received in the Leadership Oklahoma office no later than 5 p.m. on April 1.
