Leadership Norman

Chair(s): Jen Tregarthen and Brian McPherson
Staff: Erica Millar

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. Co-chaired by Jen Tregarthen, Sam Noble Museum and Brian McPherson, Shelter Insurance, the class consists of 16 interactive sessions, spanning an eight-month period, ending with graduation in April. Most sessions will be held on Thursday nights from 5:30- 9:00 p.m., with 6 day sessions.

Throughout the course of the program participants attend a variety of sessions focused on community history, current community issues, leadership, and self-discovery. Leadership Norman is a great way to learn more about your community and build your own personal network.
