2017 Legislators Welcome Reception

With the beginning of the 2017 Legislative Session and the approach of Spring, the Oklahoma Academy moves into implementation mode - increasing our efforts to bring sound, consensus driven public policy to Oklahomans across the state and, in turn, encourage and support Oklahomans to get in touch with their legislators. 

We are beginning this season of taking action with the  Legislators' Welcome Reception on March 1 at the Oklahoma City Golf & Country Club from 6:30pm to 8:30pm. Tickets for Oklahoma Academy members are $60/person and for non-Academy members are $75. The ticket price includes dinner hors d’oeuvres, your choice of beverages, and the opportunity to speak with members of the legislature in a warm, comfortable atmosphere.  Register online or email Jamie Wade at, and please take a moment to encourage your senator and representative to attend the reception. We have suggested wording below, and you can find your legislator with this online locator 

Hi (Senator/Representative)!  I am a member of the The Oklahoma Academy.  We hold a Legislators’ Welcome Reception annually specifically to thank you for your service, and importantly to welcome you to what we hope will be a very successful session.  As my (Senator/Representative), I am personally inviting you to attend.  I’ll be there, and would love to have you there as well to meet our Board  members and many others from our membership ranks.  We will share a very brief focus on some key policy recommendations we’ve provided for you and your fellow legislators to consider, but we are primarily there to focus on you.   You have received a “Save the Date,” and an invitation.  It is Wednesday, March 1st from 6:30pm to 8:30pm at the Oklahoma Golf & Country Club, 2nd Floor, Sable Room.  There is no cost for you to attend; this is in your honor! Can I count on you to be there?
