I have proudly had the opportunity to be a part of Leadership Norman this year, spending the last few months touring local schools, Sysco, The Weather Center and other businesses/establishments. I have not only expanded my knowledge of this wonderful town, but I also have learned what it takes to be a constantly evolving leader of Norman.
Leadership Norman, a program of the Norman Chamber of Commerce, offers participants an opportunity to be part of a distinct leadership group. Leadership Norman is open to anyone who either works or lives in Norman. The program is co-chaired by Brian McPherson, Shelter Insurance and Shelly Hickman.
This marvelous program consists of 15 interactive sessions, spanning an eight-month period, ending with graduation in April. The first session was held in September, with various day and evening sessions.
Throughout the course of this program I was able to attend a variety of sessions focused on community history, current community issues, leadership, and self-discovery. Leadership Norman has been a powerful tool for me to become familiar with other business leaders in the town as well as learn about the needs and future of Norman!
