The 2nd OK Policy Fall Policy Boot Camp (FallPol) will be held on Saturday, October 15, 2016 at Oklahoma Christian University Gaylord University Center East Main Dining Hall just west of the main OC entrance. We will also be hosting FallPol in Tulsa on Friday, October 14th; click here to register for the Tulsa event.
This training is intended primarily for emerging professionals working for non-profits, advocacy groups, government, and businesses, as well as educators, parents, civic volunteers, and other rising leaders with an interest in Oklahoma issues but without extensive or long-standing familiarity with the state’s policy landscape. Advocates and professionals with expertise in one policy area who wish to be better informed across a broader canvas of issues will find this training especially useful.
The deadline to register is Monday, October 10th; space is limited so be sure to register soon to ensure your spot in the program. Early bird registration is available until Friday, September 23rd. If you need financial assistance to attend, send an email providing a brief description of your circumstances to firstname.lastname@example.org A limited number of scholarships will be made available on a first come, first served basis. The scholarship deadline is September 30th. All sales are final.
