More about LNO:
LNO is a unique leadership opportunity for business and governmental leaders in Indian Country to broaden their network and sharpen their understanding of self-governance and self-determination.
This year’s LNO course will include seven monthly sessions of team building and educational sessions including a two day Indianpreneurship Course. The LNO Class will include professionals with a diverse selection of backgrounds and skill sets; they are all hoping to build a bond unrivaled by other organizations across the state.
The goal of establishing these extraordinary connections is made clear by LNO’s mission statement, “Leadership Native Oklahoma (LNO) is committed to improving Oklahoma’s future for our communities native and non-native alike by encouraging, installing and facilitating a support network of dynamic leaders with a tribal perspective in mind.”
“LNO is a unique opportunity to foster cohesiveness from a group of tribal leaders and future tribal leaders. The hours spent together will create a bond between the participants based on respect and interaction to identify, evaluate and implement projects that are of value to Native American businesses in Oklahoma, said Annetta Abbott (Choctaw), AICCO Executive Director and LNO Chairman. “The LNO program continues to grow and has received a great response from the participants and the tribes.”
“As you can see from the caliber of our 2018 Class that we have several outstanding leaders that are doing great things for the tribes across Oklahoma and for the economic benefit of our native businesses,” said Bailey Walker (Chickasaw), AICCO State President. “The value of LNO is especially important for the group to be introduced to tribal policy, sovereignty, and commerce.”
Leadership Native Oklahoma is a division of the American Indian Chamber of Commerce of Oklahoma and its programs. AICCO is an organization in which American Indian businesses, tribal leaders, and other businesses can come together with innovative ideas that will promote and enhance the success of all American Indian people.
