The McAlester Local Economic Advancement and Development (LEAD) Committee consists of ten members that represent a variety of development partners and economic sectors, including City Council, Finance, Education, Defense, Small Business, Industry, Healthcare, and Chamber of Commerce. The mayor appoints each member with the concurrence of the City Council.

All members of the Committee are unpaid volunteers and shall serve one-year terms with no term limitations. The chairperson and vice-chairperson shall be determined by a vote of the committee members.

The LEAD Committee is an advisory board of the City's Community and Economic Development Departments. The committee, in conjunction with City staff, will work to evaluate the current development policy and ordinances, identify opportunities for economic growth, and make recommendations to the City Council.

The Committee was established by the City Council by Ord. No. 2650 on April 9, 2019.
