Chamber Chat

Ponca City Now - May 26, 2015 8:33 am

The May Business after Hours for Chamber Members will be held Tuesday evening from 5 to 7 p.m., hosted by First National Bank of Oklahoma. This is a great opportunity for our Chamber Members. If you are a Chamber Member, please join us.

This week our Chamber Board and Tourism Bureau will meet. I appreciate all the work, by both of these groups, benefitting our members and Ponca City.

Friday we are hosting a tour operator and showing him our tourist attractions. Last week we hosted several European Tour Operators and they were very impressed with Ponca City.

The goals for the Tourism Bureau as set forth by the City are:

  • To promote the tourism development effort, through the Chamber, as economic development for Ponca City.

  • To increase tourism traffic to Ponca City at our attractions and events.

  • To increase our marketing efforts throughout Oklahoma, Texas, Missouri, Kansas, Arkansas and with snow birds traveling I-35.

  • To partner with the Oklahoma Department of Tourism in tourism trade shows.

To partner with the Oklahoma Department of Tourism in marketing Ponca City to the European travel market.

We take this responsibility very seriously!
