2014-15 PIP Schedule

Here is the anticipated speaker schedule for the 2014-15 Partners class.  In October, we will share the location of our classes but it will not be at the Junior League or National Guard Armory.  Partners graduates and Partners students who need to complete requirements to graduate may attend classes by doing the following:

1. If you need to complete classes:  Read the below schedule carefully.  Erin cannot tell you which speakers you need to make up and WHEN these speakers come to Oklahoma changes annually.  In some cases, she can tell you which days you missed class.   Please email Erin (erin.taylor@okddc.ok.gov) at least 10 days before class and request a seat for a specific speaker or time frame.  Depending on a few factors, we may be able to feed you lunch/dinner that day but please make your own meal plans just in case.  As a reminder, class on Saturday and Sunday starts at 9 AM and ends at 7:30 PM on Saturday and 2 PM Sunday.  We cannot provide respite or mileage reimbursement or hotel rooms to former students completing requirements.

2. If you are a PIP graduate and want to see a speaker: Please email Erin (erin.taylor@okddc.ok.gov) at least 10 days before class and request a seat for a specific speaker or time frame.  Depending on a few factors, we may be able to feed you lunch/dinner that day but please make your own meal plans just in case.  We cannot provide respite or mileage reimbursement or hotel rooms to former students completing requirements.

Please understand this is our anticipated schedule and exact times have not yet been established.  Additionally, Partners does not start until October 2014 this year and there are two sessions for that month.
