    The Ambassador Committee is also known as our Directors of First Impressions. They are the face of the chamber to our prospective and new members. Our Ambassadors help welcome new members at our luncheons and introduce them to other members, host ribbon cuttings, and attend our After Hours event each month.

  • Government Affairs Committee


  • Chair: Jennifer Ballew

     

    Meet: As needed, typically in fall months and take monthly trip to capitol during session

     

    Our Government Affairs Committee is responsible for putting together our annual legislative agenda that we use as a chamber to lobby for pro-business issues and legislation during session each year. They also help host forums and legislative updates with our elected officials as well as those running for office. We only take stances on issues, not on actual candidates, and seek to inform the public and our members, not persuade. We take a monthly trip to the capitol with our committee to meet with our elected officials, as well as stay in touch with what is going on in Oklahoma City. If you are interested in hearing more information or in getting involved, contact the chamber today!
