Limited spacing - act now! Each year the US Small Business Administration chooses a limited number of cities to host the Emerging Leaders Program. Once again Oklahoma City will host an Emerging Leaders Program. Emerging Leaders is an intense 13 class program that assists existing business owners in developing a strategic growth plan. The Emerging Leaders advanced training series is open to small business owners and executives that:
• Have annual revenues of at least $400,000.
• Have been in business for at least 3 years.
• At least one employee other than the owner.
The cost of the program is completely covered by the SBA and our program cosponsors. If you meet the above criteria and believe that developing a strategic growth plan would be of benefit, sign up soon as the registration deadline is quickly approaching and class size is limited to only 15 participants in Oklahoma. Additional information on the Emerging Leaders Program can be found at http://www.sba.gov/emergingleaders.
