The 2018 OCPRA Annual Conference will be held at the Artesian Hotel in Sulphur, Oklahoma. The conference begins on Sunday afternoon and concludes just before noon on Tuesday. This is a great opportunity to learn, be energized - and what we find to be the most compelling reason to attend - to network with your colleagues from across the state. Registration costs include the hotel and all meals.


 

Keynote Speakers

Detailed information on keynote speakers and conference programming will be posted soon and as it becomes available. We are looking forward to another robust and invigorating conference.
