Leadership Weatherford is a program of the Weatherford Chamber of Commerce that is operated by Southwestern Oklahoma State University. The class offers an educational experience designed to help identify and motivate potential leaders about the current issues and needs in the community as well as challenges that participants can apply their talents in solving.

The class is a nine-month education and development series that features local and outside leaders, speakers, hands-on tours and field trips to community facilities, services and venues. The basis of the series is observation and interactive participation once a month from September to May.

Over 300 people have graduated from Leadership Weatherford in the past 23 years.
