Leadership Owasso

Leadership Owasso is a program designed to develop and connect strong leaders in the Owasso area who are interested in expanding their knowledge of government, education, economic development, healthcare, social services, and other quality of life initiatives.

Beginning with the Class of 2022-2023, each Class will begin in August with a mandatory day and a half Leadership Retreat. Each session following will consist of one full-day class a month from September through May, totaling 10 Class Sessions.

Each Class will be responsible for presenting a philanthropic class project at the end of class, giving back to the Owasso community. A Graduation and Alumni Dinner will occur in June, giving an opportunity for Classes current and past to celebrate and connect.
