Leadership Durant

Leadership Durant, under the umbrella of the Durant Area Chamber of Commerce, 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 qualities.

The Leadership Durant class begins each July with a reception and is completed in June with graduation. The class meets for one day each month with the exception of December. They participate in activities ranging from team building exercises to visiting and meeting area media, city, council and state officials. They also tour area schools, hospitals, major employers and other areas of interest such as museums and the Oklahoma City State Capitol. Additional activities and events are scheduled throughout the year to help raise money to donate to a deserving non-profit organization of that class’ choice. Leadership Durant also volunteers for various events and organizations throughout the year.

The first meeting for the new class will be a reception held in July with the first day of class in August. Participants and their employers must commit to this program for it to be effective for each student. Former class members include vice presidents of banks, business owners, teachers, managers, professors, attorneys, administrative personnel and more.
