“We are so thrilled and honored that Secretary Arthur has accepted our invitation to speak and kick off our annual Policy Meeting. She brings a wealth of experience, solid leadership and a tremendous
passion for the success of Oklahoma agriculture,” said Weston Givens, OCA President. “In 2016, Arthur was presented OCA’s Distinguished Service Award. She is an OCA member and a fellow beef producer.
We sincerely look forward to working with her as Oklahoma’s Secretary of Agriculture.”
The winter policy meeting provides OCA members an opportunity to consider and create policy that drives the organization. OCA membership is required to attend.
“The future depends on what you do today,” said Givens. “We encourage all OCA members to attend the policy meeting, participate in discussions, bring policy ideas and vote.”
The timing of the Winter Policy Meeting in late January allows for OCA members to discuss bills of the upcoming Legislative Session which begins in February as well as proposed policies for the National
Cattlemen’s Beef Association (NCBA) Annual Convention which takes place the week after OCA’s Winter Policy Meeting.
The deadline for early registration has already passed, but on-site registration will be available during the event with lunch and snacks included in the price. For more information about this week's meeting, visit OCA's webiste at www.okcattlemen.org.
