Oklahoma Cattlemen’s Association Policy Meeting Speakers Announced

Governor Kevin Stitt will kick off the Oklahoma Cattlemen’s Association’s Annual Policy Meeting on Thursday, January 26. Oklahoma Medical Marijuana Authority Executive Director Adria Berry is the luncheon speaker.

“OCA members will have the opportunity to hear Governor Stitt and Director Berry as keynote speakers this year at the OCA Winter Policy Meeting,” said Byron Yeoman, Oklahoma Cattlemen’s Association president. “Governor Stitt, who was just re-elected, will share his outlook for Oklahoma while Director Berry will update us on the progress of the Oklahoma Marijuana Medical Authority. We are honored to have these two great leaders coming to our meeting.”

The meeting will take place at the Embassy Suites Oklahoma City Northwest located in Oklahoma City, Okla. and will begin at 9 a.m. with the Governor’s address. The day will consist of committee meetings, lunch and the OCA quarterly board of directors meeting.

The winter policy meeting provides OCA members an opportunity to consider and create policies that drives the organization. OCA membership is required to attend.

Michael Kelsey, OCA Executive Vice President stated, “The OCA Winter Policy meeting is of utmost importance as it is a key opportunity for OCA members to review, debate and set the policy direction of their association. We encourage OCA members to plan makes to attend this day long intense meeting of policy discussion.”

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 after OCA’s Policy Meeting.
