Each March the Oregon Executive Development Institute (OEDI) conducts an annual one-week executive leadership training session for current and future Oregon executives.  The format is in-residence, rural setting with training and networking events extending into the evening to maximize the week-long event.  The training focuses on leadership and executive management issues with an underlying theme of servant leadership.

The OEDI annual session will be held March, 11-16, 2018. For further details, see the Session Training Schedule

OEDI has formed partnerships with Oregon universities to offer college credits to attendees for successful completion of the annual session. Details will be provided at session orientation.

We are accepting applications for the 2018 Session beginning July 3, 2017.
