Ponca City Now - March 4, 2016 2:29 pm
Our 30th Ponca City Leadership class will have State Government Day this week. They will travel to Oklahoma City and go to the State Capitol. Senator Eddie Fields’ staff has been a big help in planning the day.
The agenda set for the day is awesome. The class will visit the State Representative House Chambers then the Senate Chambers. They will have a guided tour of the State Capitol. During the day they will meet with Senator Fields and Representative Vaughan. They will also hear from H.J. Reed, Phillips 66 Government Affairs Manager, Ken Miller, State Treasurer, Dr. Bob Blackburn, Executive Director for the Oklahoma Historical Society, Leslie Blair, Legislative Liaison and Public Information Officer for the Department of Commerce and Secretary Jim Reese, Department of Agriculture.
The class will also tour the Oklahoma City National Memorial. We do this to highlight what Oklahoma City went through and how they moved forward after this horrible terrorist attack. Many have said that Oklahoma City and the people of Oklahoma were a model for the people of New York City after their 9-11 attack.
Don’t forget Leadership Alumni about the Leadership Alumni Luncheon this week. Phone the Chamber Office for all the details. We will also have a membership planning meeting on Thursday.
