WHAT OUR MEMBERS ARE SAYING

"The experience was beyond expectation. The people I met in the class are incredible, each with their own talents and strengths. It was interesting to see leadership from this widely varied perspective. I never left a session without feeling deep admiration for the passion and depth of knowledge demonstrated by my peers. Also, I think the communities of Oklahoma have much to be proud of, each one with its unique character. I think every Oklahoman needs to travel to the far reaches of our state to better appreciate where we come from. This state has a lot going for it! All in all, I would do it again in a heartbeat. Veritas LOK XXIX!" -Wayne McMillin, Class XXIX.

The foundation of Leadership Oklahoma is the adult class program; an educational, issues oriented nine-month experience.  Monthly sessions are held in communities throughout the state. Each class is exposed to the numerous social and environmental complexities of the state to stimulate inquiry, analysis and independent development of solutions for the public good. Class members meet and talk with Oklahoma’s current leaders and explore the state’s opportunities, needs and resources. Based upon interaction and respect developed during the class year, a living network is formed – a network capable of identifying, evaluating and implementing projects of value to the people of Oklahoma. The class program, and the network formed by it, allow members of LOK to meet the challenge of the LOK Mission Statement “To create, inspire and support a dynamic network of leaders whose increased awareness and commitment to service will energize Oklahomans to shape Oklahoma’s future.”

To host a Class 31 session in 2017 – 2018, a completed community application must be submitted no later than May 8, 2017.  Communities will be notified no later than June 1 regarding the selection of host communities.
