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.

 

ADULT PROGRAM

Overview

Leadership Oklahoma (LOK) is a statewide organization encompassing citizens from every region of the state ensuring a diverse group of leaders.  It has a membership of approximately 1480 adult leaders from 168 communities bringing expertise in business, education, health, government, non-profit, finance, law, and utility sectors from across the state.

LOK is unique in its ability to foster cohesiveness among a group of citizens coming from different backgrounds.  The countless hours spent together creates a bond like no other organization across the state.  Based on respect and interaction, a living network shares an ability to identify, evaluate, and implement projects of value to Oklahoma. This statewide network has a shared experience and understanding of Oklahoma’s issues and respects the differences among us we must overcome to achieve success.

The primary program of Leadership Oklahoma is its annual educational, issues-oriented ten-month class program.  Monthly two-day sessions are held in various communities throughout the state.  Each year Oklahoma leaders who represent a wide geographic base and who have diverse backgrounds and vocations are selected to participate.  Each class is exposed to the many social and environmental complexities of the state in order 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, issues and resources.  Based on the 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.
