Leadership Edmond is a leadership development program designed to provide community leaders with a deeper understanding of the critical issues affecting the Edmond area. Participants receive in-depth exposure to the critical issues facing the community through lectures, discussion groups, on-site visits, simulations and other leadership development activities. Participants also get a chance to meet key community leaders. The program is presented by OU Medical Center Edmond.

“Leadership Edmond has been an enriching part of my business life. It has not only deepened my understanding of our great city, and its inner works, but it has challenged my commitment to better serve our great community. The LE experience was rewarding not only on a professional level, but on a personal level as well. Leadership Edmond will provide you an up close and personal experience on how our community and its entities function. This program is solid, I recommend it!” said Phil Kerbo, MIDCON Data Services and 2014 Leadership Edmond Chair.

The program begins with a two-day overnight retreat on August 25 & 26, 2014 which will focus on community leadership skills. The remaining eight, day-long sessions meet once a month and each focus on a specific community topic such as city government, education, heath/wellness, state government and volunteering. The program enables participants to develop their leadership capacities, build strong relationships and prepare themselves for the challenges of years to come. The 2014-2015 class will be the 30th class of Leadership Edmond.

Class size is limited to 35 individuals. Class members are selected to represent a broad range of occupations and backgrounds. For more information on the Leadership Edmond program or to download the application visit www.edmondchamber.com.
