Class XXIX is presented by OU Medical Center Edmond
Leadership Edmond is a leadership development program designed to provide community leaders with a deeper understanding of the critical issues affecting the Edmond area. This program also provides an ongoing source of diverse leaders who are prepared and committed to serve as catalysts of positive change for the quality of life in the Edmond area.
The program begins with a two-day overnight retreat on August 26 & 27, 2013 which focuses 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.
Class size is limited to 35 individuals. Class members are selected to represent a broad range of occupations and backgrounds.
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.
Class sessions, September through April, are day long events held in the Edmond area, depending on the topic for the class. The location and format of each session is different. The program enables participants to develop their leadership capacities, build strong relationships and prepare themselves for the challenges of years to come. The 2013-2014 class will be the 29th class of Leadership Edmond.
