OCCM Lead is an Orthodox Christian leadership training for student leaders and young adults (ages 18-25). OCCM Lead is focused to train OCCM student leaders, OCCM members and young adults interested to learn what it means to be an Orthodox leader and run for leadership positions in OCCM, the Church, and the professional world.
OCCM Lead is required training for the Student Leadership Team (Executive Board, Regional Directors, Committee Chairpersons, and Chapter Officers). Our goal is that all newly elected OCCM student leaders, prospective leaders, and those interested in leadership development be trained through the OCCM Lead program as we continue to better equip and lead our OCCM organization.
There will be two OCCM Lead regional conferences to accommodate the geographic distribution of the Diocese. Attendees are not confined to their region for attendance, in case one date works better than the other for an individual.
