Approximately 400 municipal officials from across the state attended the Annual Oklahoma Municipal League (OML) Conference and Exposition, held September 12-14 in downtown Tulsa at the Cox Business Center. OML is honored to have the Oklahoma Municipal Retirement Fund (OkMRF), the Municipal Electric Services Organization (MESO) and the Oklahoma Municipal Assurance Group (OMAG) as coalition partners in this yearly endeavor to bring much needed educational opportunities to Oklahoma officials.

One of this year’s keynote speakers was world renowned author and speaker Jim Stovall who spoke to municipal officials about the “Yes You Can!” attitude and how to be a go-getter. Stovall offers a vision of what can be achieved by those who say “yes” in the face of challenge and adversity.

Each year, the conference brings city and town officials together for an outstanding municipal training and educational opportunity. This year municipal officials chose from over 40 different conference sessions covering top issues affecting cities and towns, that included such issues as Building a Culture of Teamwork and Code Enforcement – A Win For Your City. A session that drew particular interest was the Small Systems and the Challenges They Face on Funding presented by Joe Freeman with the Oklahoma Water Resources Board (OWRB); Larry Thoma, Mayor of Elgin; Dan Yancey, City Manager of Skiatook; and Rick Smith with Municipal Finance Services.

The Oklahoma Municipal League is a statewide, non-profit corporation currently composed of 473 member cities and towns. The League serves as a spokesperson for municipalities at state and federal government levels to achieve local objectives. By working together through the League, municipal officials formulate programs and unite in concerted action benefiting their communities.
