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

The organization accepts a class of 52 members each year. The 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 two-day sessions. Classes are held in locations that best relate to the issues of importance to the state.

“Leadership Oklahoma and its graduates are working to create and implement the positive changes necessary to make Oklahoma a better state,” said Monica Neal, senior vice president, corporate services for People’s Electric Cooperative in Ada and chairman of Leadership Oklahoma Adult Program Committee. “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.”

Approximately 1,300 people have graduated from the program and remain active in contributing to Oklahoma’s strength and vitality.

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. April 1.
