OneVoice Task Forces

Play a part in shaping regional legislation through creating the OneVoice Regional Legislative Agenda. The agenda is developed through the collaboration of more than 500 individuals representing hundreds of businesses and more than 75 chambers of commerce, municipalities, counties and economic development organizations.

Task forces will meet throughout the summer to create a list of top priorities. The top priority from each task force area will be placed on the 2020 OneVoice agenda, and task forces’ other priorities will be presented for consideration at the OneVoice Regional Legislative Summit this fall.

To ensure the region’s top priorities are represented, please ask a representative from your organization to join us on one of the task forces.

All task force meetings will be held in the Tulsa Regional Chamber’s offices, located at 1 West 3rd Street, Tulsa, OK 74103.
