Announcing the 37th Leadership Norman Classon
Thirty-two Norman residents have been chosen to participate in the Chamber’s 37th Leadership Norman class. The program is designed to identify and motivate emerging leaders through development of their potential for community leadership.
During the next several months, participants will attend 13 interactive sessions covering a variety of topics including communication, education, personal leadership, quality of life issues, city and state government, health care, and economic development. Class members will also be given the opportunity to serve area non-profits.
Co-chairs of this year's program are Laura Moxley, Fowler Holding Company and Sam Talley, Talley, Turner & Bertman P.C. Both are graduates of Leadership Norman, and Moxley served as a co-chair for last year’s class.
“Service to others through community engagement is at the core of what Leadership Norman is all about. Those who participate have an opportunity to see first-hand how Norman's programs are impacting the lives of others and to identify areas of need. Participants are also able to connect in various ways to support efforts at improving our city. I am looking forward to this year's leadership class and excited to continue my involvement,” said Laura Moxley.

“There is no greater or imperative program for a leader in this City than Leadership Norman. I am so lucky to have experienced it and even more lucky to be involved as a volunteer for the program. I know this program is the only one that connects our city's history with our future correctly. Furthermore, it allows our leaders to see so many of the community’s assets, as well as, its needs all at the same time,” said Sam Talley. “I am so excited for this year's stand out class and watching them be blown away by this program.”
The class will attend an Orientation session on Thursday, September 28 at Legend’s Times Two restaurant.
