If you are looking for someone to TRAVEL or ROOM with, please post that on the Facebook page. Some of our attendees are looking to share costs and make new friends.

For making travel arrangements, please know that we expect Sunday’s class and graduation celebration to go at least until 5:00, If you need to leave early, let us know so we can adjust your photo time.

What to Send Ahead

If you have any of the following, please send them so we can include examples in our discussions. One of our goals with SNHU is to share and get feedback on what we are currently doing or planning to do, sharing best practices, and learning from each other. We realize each of us is at a different stage of professional development, so please do not worry if you have not yet created them.
  • Photo(s) of you in character—it can be a head shot, full shot, in casual wear, business wear, formal wear, etc. We want to build in a showcase of your different looks for different venues. You can also send some photos you are not that happy with and are willing to share as an example of a lesson learned, like the shiny face, the bad angle, the awkward pose, etc.
  • Business Card—scan your current business card for a show and tell of how you advertise and market yourself.
 Send what you have to

What to Bring with You

  • Stocking Stuffers - We are building Christmas stockings for everyone attending, and you're invited to add something to the fun. If you would like to contribute, bring 15-20 small stocking stuffers to help create a memory for your classmates.
  • Donations for the Shelter - Visit the Shelter's website HERE to see their needed items and if you would like to participate, bring your donations and we will add to the basket.
  • Your Swim Suit, Sunscreen, Hat - After class, we can enjoy time in the hot tub at Jocelyn's, or at the pool at the vacation rental across the street, even if you just dip your toes in the water. 
  • An Accessory bring your favorite (travel-worthy) accessory to show your classmates what you add to your attire that helps you stand out from the crowd.
  • Business Cards - bring a few extra business cards to exchange with your classmates to build your networking directory.

Dress Code and Weather

  • Casual and comfortable for class time. Tulsa in September should be in the mid-80s.
  • Photo-worthy clothing for your head shot Sunday afternoon. You do not need to bring your full regalia, as we intend to take head shots for your marketing purposes.
  • Graduation—we would love to see everyone wear a red top and black pants/skirt for our class graduation photo, which we will take Sunday afternoon. We like the idea of carrying on the theme that Santa Nana started with her first class in 2016, and then for the inaugural session in Canal Winchester in 2018, and most recently in Durham and Fresno. We all look fabulous, do we not?!

Bringing a Guest?

If your spouse or partner plans to come to Tulsa but doesn’t plan to attend class, let us know if you want to include him/her with meals. We can send a separate invoice for the Friday reception, Saturday lunch and Sunday graduation celebration ($15 each). Guests are also welcome to join us at the group dinner Saturday night at Tally's (separate checks). Write to us at
Thank you, and we will see you very soon!
