Today’s regional challenges require a new problem-solving capacity and the ability to work across political, geographical and institutional boundaries.
Through the NORA Leadership Academy, leaders develop a broader awareness of the region. They acquire a greater knowledge of the interdependence of the diverse communities that constitute the Northeastern Oklahoma. Additionally, participants are able to sharpen leadership skills while networking with decisions makers and professionals statewide.
The program focuses on topics relevant to current trends and issues. The curriculum provides a framework for understanding organizational and institutional processes and responsibilities for regional planning, problem-solving and community building. Local and regional experts address diverse topics, including ingredients of a successful region, community collaboration, education, economic and social trends.
