What is Leadership Owasso?
The Leadership program is designed to develop strong leaders in the Owasso area who are interested in expanding their knowledge in the areas of government, education, economic development and quality of life initiatives. Leadership Owasso is a community based program designed to increase the participant’s knowledge of, commitment to, and involvement in Owasso, the City Without Limits. The 8 session program begins in October and ends in May of the following year, with a full day trip to the State Capitol. Graduation is held during the June Chamber Luncheon.
