OAOA was there! ... at the Cox Center in Oklahoma City when the Oklahoma Municipal League held its Conference September 23 - 25.  Having an exhibit there allowed for OAOA members to meet new city officials and airport managers from around the state and to explain the benefits of OAOA membership.  

Most had no idea that the dues are as low as they are and that those dues include, among other things, the following:

       1.    OAOA Annual Conference
Registration included for at least one representative (number depends on classification)
              Education and Training
Networking with other Airport Management Professionals
Meals at conferenceEducation and Training 

                     2.  Website www.okairports.com   and Facebook  www.facebook.com/FlyOklahoma 
                           Directory available to Members only
                           Calendar of OAOA activities as well as Fly-Ins, Training, etc.
                           Ask your airport questions on the website if you don’t know who to ask.
                           Members can submit information about activities at their airport; a little free advertising never hurt!
                     3.   Networking  (help and ready reference)
                           There is probably not a problem that you can face that has not been faced already by at least one of our 
                            other members… and they are willing to help and share their experience and knowledge with you.
                     4.  Training
                           OAOA brings all kinds of information and training to the OAOA Annual Conference and also to each of 
                           our Quarterly Meetings.

The booth also allowed us to visit and share information with current members from around the state who dropped by to say hello.  Among those who came by were Vickie Pieratt of Broken Bow, David Sprouse of Madill, and Tina Foshee of Idabel.
