Leadership Exchange Academy Names 2024 Cohort

OKLAHOMA CITY (May 22, 2024) – Some of the best and brightest minds in the state will be gathering in Oklahoma City this summer for the Leadership Exchange Academy. For the 14th time, 38 men and women will take part in a cohort. The members will come together for educational conferences and programing to exchange ideas and learn about good government practices, the public policy process, and free enterprise.

“We're proud to announce our 2024 Leadership Exchange Academy cohort group. We're excited for the individuals that are going to participate,” said State Chamber Research Foundation (SCRF) Executive Director Ben Lepak. “We had a great response to our call for applications. Many good candidates applied. We feel that this cohort group is a very strong class. It's going to contribute to the strength of the program and to Oklahoma in general.”

This program is now under the umbrella of the SCRF. It connects civic-minded professionals with state government and business leaders.

“This cohort will join the 400-plus alumni members of the Leadership Exchange Academy. The real strength of the program is the alumni network and all the things that people do to stay engaged in the program after they've gone through the cohort,” said Lepak.

There will be two two-day conferences, June 20–21 and July 25–26, 2024, in Oklahoma City.
