Class XXXV of Leadership Edmond has been selected by the Edmond Area Chamber of Commerce. Leadership Edmond is a nine-session program, coordinated by the Edmond Chamber to identify, educate and develop a select group of Edmond citizens for positions of community leadership.
Class XXXV is presented by Edmond Electric. The day sponsors for Leadership Edmond are MIDCON, Frankfurt Short Bruza Associates, P.C., Mercy, and Francis Tuttle Technology Center.
The program’s principal goal is to build a resource of community leadership on a planned, continuing basis with four specific objectives: to identify potential community leaders; to expand the leadership potential of participants by increasing their knowledge of Edmond and the critical issues that face the community and by exposing participants to present community leaders; to improve communications between present and future leaders; and to provide a channel for those not presently in leadership roles to gain access to positions of community leadership in an informed and responsible manner.
