Community Leadership Development Class 7 Graduates

Christy Christoffersen

The Class 7 of the Oklahoma Municipal League’s Community Leadership Development (CLD) class held their graduation session recently in Ponca City.

Twenty-seven community staff and leaders attended six sessions throughout the past year in various communities across the state.  Each session focused on different aspects of leadership designed to equip participants with the skills and information they need to make a positive impact on their local communities.

The graduation session featured a tour of the Marland Mansion & Estate, a welcome by Mayor Homer Nicholson, and dinner and entertainment by historic actors.  In addition, there were group presentations by the class members, focusing on how to respond to an actual Request for Proposal (RFP) that had previously been received by the Oklahoma Department of Commerce (ODC).

The purpose of the group presentation was to give class members first-hand experience in responding to a company showing interest in locating their company in an Oklahoma city or town.  The winning group, representing the town of Harrah included Dorie Spitler, Leisa Haynes, K.P. Westmoreland and Holly Gordon.  Judges for the presentations were Connie Lake and Christopher Suttle, both Project Managers in Business Recruitment for the ODC.

According to Cheryl Adams, OML Programs Manager, Class 7 was a great class of eager people who shared a desire to learn more about leadership so that they can make their cities and towns even better.  Adams added that the CLD Class 8 will begin in April.
