Leadership Durant applications are due on Friday, May 31, 2013 at 5:00 pm. What is Leadership Durant? Leadership Durant is for professionals who desire to learn more about their community and develop or further enhance their leadership skills. Individuals exit the class having identified and molded their specific leadership skills. The Leadership class begins in July with a reception and is completed in June with graduation. The class meets for one day every month with the exception of December. They will participate in activities ranging from team building exercises to visiting area media, city, county, and state officials. They will also tour schools, hospital, and other areas of interest, such as museums and the State Capitol in Oklahoma City. Additional activities will be scheduled throughout the year. The first meeting for the new class will be a reception held in July 2013. The first class day will begin in August 2013. This will be orientation day and each student will receive their Leadership Durant portfolio and the agenda for each month. Students and employers must commit to this program for it to be effective. Former class members include Vice Presidents of Banks, Business Owners, Managers, Teachers, Professors, Attorneys and Administration personnel.
