As we start this new OVF session, and for many, a new fiscal year, I am thrilled to take over as chair for 2023-2024!
Oklahoma continues to expand resources for entrepreneurs, small business, and enterprise level ventures. Organizations like OVF are special because we have the unique opportunity to put all of those ecosystem builders and members together monthly– from service providers, to educational institutions, founders, funders, agencies, tribes, and more – we all are part of a community working toward the common goal of improving Oklahoma’s economy. OVF contributes by providing original content, intentional networking, and has been a trusted supporter of Oklahoma business interest since 1987. I’m grateful to Jennifer McGrail as she steps into the role of past chair and I’m excited about my executive committee and board as we have been hard at work for you during this summer break.
August doesn’t just signal a new OVF year, it’s also for renewals and to recruit new members. There are many ways for members to engage and connect. Explore our membership tiers and find what fits best for you as an organization or an individual. If you’ve been a member for a long time, you might notice a few new things, namely, there will be 3 power lunches in Tulsa, a new OKC power lunch venue, increased value through guest passes, diversified sponsorship opportunities, expanded networking after the lunch meetings, and committees where you can share your talents to take OVF to the next level.
Please join us on August 24th for our annual membership drive at MADHOPPER Brewing – I want to tell you about everything in person! Our first power lunch of the year will be held at MetroTech Springlake on September 13th.
