Leadership YOUniversity graduation set for May 29

Ada —

Ada Area Chamber of Commerce  announces 25 participants will be graduating from Leadership YOUniversity on Wednesday, May 29. For those who may not know, Leadership YOUniversity is a five-month Chamber program that promotes and enhances professional development. This year, the class participants heard and interacted with several professional speakers who discussed topics including personality traits, networking, public speaking, generational differences and team building.

“I enjoyed all of the classes, but the team building class taught by Scout Cloud Lee stood out to me the most. Leadership YOUniversity helped me learn how to communicate more effectively with people who have different learning styles. I am glad I had the opportunity to be a part of this program,” said Amber Teafatiller, class participant and banking officer at First United Bank.

Chea Christian, Leadership YOUniversity chairperson, stated that the class had been an overwhelming success.

“I would like to thank the committee for working diligently to put together an amazing lineup of presenters," Christian said. "I would also like to thank the Ada-area businesses who continue to support this program. It is very exciting to watch the progression of the participants from the first session to the last session and watch how their leadership styles develop.”

Leadership YOUniversity participants will have a graduation luncheon May 29 at the Oak Hills Golf & Country Club. The luncheon will be held from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m., with  Dan Boren as the guest speaker.  Boren currently serves as president of corporate development for the Chickasaw Nation. In that role, he works with existing businesses within the Nation’s portfolio as well as engaging in economic diversification for the Nation. He assumed this role in January 2013. Prior to this position, Boren served in the U.S. House of Representatives from Oklahoma’s 2nd Congressional District. During that time he served on several prestigious committees, including the House Resources Committee, the Indian and Alaska Native Affairs Subcommittee and the Financial Services and Armed Services Committees.

For more information to attend, phone the Chamber at 580-332-2506.
