63rd Annual Conference

Braving the Elements

Oklahoma State University | Wes Watkins Center, Stillwater

October 16-18, 2019 | Pre-Conference, October 15, 2019

Since 1957, the Oklahoma Municipal Clerks, Treasurers and Finance Officials Association (OMCTFOA) has promoted, enhanced and encouraged the professional development and standing of clerks, treasurers and finance officials through cooperative communication, education and training.

I encourage you to become a part of this organization and the many educational and networking opportunities it offers. These include the Spring Institute and Academy Sessions which OMCTFOA offers three scholarships for qualified members, and the Fall Conference in October at the Wes Watkins Center in Stillwater.

This year will be our 63rd conference and the theme is “Braving the Elements” as we welcome the increase of new municipal clerks and treasurers across the state. We all know that at times it can get a little overwhelming, but there is help and a lot of networking amongst us. The conference dates are October 16th through 18th, the pre-conference will be the 15th of October. Again, OMCTFOA offers five first time attendee scholarships to the Fall Conference.

Throughout the year there are many local and state seminars and workshops that offer valuable information to the clerks and treasurers. OMCTFOA also offers 1 (one) scholarship to one of the National Conferences to a qualified member. All of the scholarship applications are on the web-site and are due by January 1 of each year. 

I am honored to serve as your 2019 OMCTFOA President. We have a great board that is already planning and working on your behalf. We are here to serve you and your needs at all times. A list of the current board members will be on the website so we will be able to help answer any questions you might have concerning the conferences or a general question relating to city business. If you have any input regarding sessions or ideas you would like to see at the conference feel free to call me 405-376-4521 or email me at

As always I look forward to seeing you and participating with you in our 2019 activities.
