The program consists of two components -- "Management, Disney Style" and "Service, Disney Style."

Registration and tuition fees for the program are $190 for chamber members and $225 for nonmembers. For registration, call 297- 8875.

Axces charged

A Houston-based telephone services reseller faces contempt charges for nine violations of Oklahoma telephone laws and Corporation Commission rules.

The commission said that its Consumer Service Division filed the complaint against Axces Inc. The division is seeking the maximum fine allowed by law, the greater of $10,000 per occurrence or $500 per day per violation, and revocation of Axces' authority to resell telephone services in Oklahoma.

Axces allegedly switched the long-distance service of seven customers without authority, which is known as "slamming." It also allegedly added unauthorized charges, known as "cramming," to the phone bills of two of those customers.
