PLAN is the word of the month. Do you ever look at the list of stuff you have to get done in a day, a week, a month and wonder how in the WORLD am I going to make it all work? Some days our lives are unpredictable and we attempt to regain control by giving our lives structure; continuity; PREDICIBILITY. At LOK, they have helped to alleviate some of the stress of the unknown and provide us with different ways to PLAN intentional engagement.

Plan to renew your LOK membership. Plan to attend one or more of the upcoming 2017-2018 events. Your class experience was the period at the end of the sentence. Turn the page and start the next chapter of your LOK experience; serve on a committee, attend an event, connect with other LOK alumni in your area, or reach out to the LOK staff to find ways to connect in your community. We are all “the best class ever”, but the broader meaning now includes all of us, all 30 classes, making us “the best network ever.”

"Helping Oklahoma" is a program developed to further Leadership Oklahoma’s mission to create, inspire and support leaders whose commitment to service energizes Oklahomans to shape our state’s future. It is designed to recognize Oklahoma volunteers who go above and beyond to make a difference in their communities and/or Oklahoma.

This is your opportunity to nominate a volunteer in your community who makes the kind of positive difference that deserves to be recognized. If selected as the winner, your nominee will receive a $2,500 prize to be donated to the charity of his/her choice.
