2020 Fall Conference Update

Lindsey GriggUncategorized

Good morning,

After careful consideration the Oklahoma Municipal Clerks, Treasurers, and Finance Officials Association Board in cooperation with Oklahoma State University has decided to postpone the 2020 OMCTFOA Fall Conference until fall of 2021.  We noted from comments on the recent survey, it appeared that it would be difficult for many of the members to attend a virtual conference condensed into a multi-day conference with the number of hours needed to cover topics. Due to COVID-19 and guidelines for social distancing and the safety of our members, we feel it is in the best interest of the association members to postpone the conference.  We feel that the “in-person” networking plays a vital role in what the cities take away from the conference and so at this point in time, the next conference will be scheduled in October 2021.

However, we are going to be innovative and creative and offer the pre-conference sessions as webinars on October 13 & 14, 2020, from 10am-noon and 2-4pm (because we still want you to earn the hours you need to complete your Institute and/or Academy sessions in a timely manner).  If you have questions regarding the Clerks and Treasurers Institute or Academy, please contact Lynsey Turlington, Institute Director of the OSU Municipal Clerks and Treasurers Institute and Academy at lynsey.turlington@okstate.edu

The Fall Institute and Academy webinars (formerly entitled the “Pre-conference”) will count for credit toward your clerks/treasurers transcripts.  The flyer and a link to register will be sent out to you soon! We hope that you are doing well and look forward to seeing you at next year’s conference!

Additionally, the OMCTFOA Board with be working with Oklahoma Municipal Management Services to provide additional online training opportunities over the coming months.  Keep a watch for more information on this training.  Stay safe everyone!

Best,
