 Upcoming Member Events!

June 16, 2016
Are You “Shore”? Oklahoma’s Waterway to the World
Floating Barge Tour of the Port of Catoosa's Terminal and Fleeting Area
The Tulsa Port of Catoosa
5350 Cimarron Rd.
Catoosa, OK 74015
1:30 pm – 3:30 pm
Cost: FREE – LOK Member; $20 – Non-Member
RSVP by June 10, 2016 – Limited seating (70 people)

ID YOU can ship a couple of bushels of wheat from The Tulsa Port of Catoosa to the Gulf of Mexico, for less than the cost of a first class postage stamp; that the port is the most inland, year-round-ice-free port in the U.S.; and that one inland towboat, pushing 12 barges is replacing 720 trucks driving on the roads!

LOK members and guests will experience a VIP tour of The Tulsa Port of Catoosa with a boardroom briefing and barge tour of the facility. The Tulsa Port of Catoosa is a singular combination of a multi-modal shipping complex and 2,000-acre industrial park resulting in an economic impact of $300 million to Oklahoma. The complex hosts roughly 60 companies and employs nearly 4,000 Oklahomans.

Located at the head of navigation for the McClellan-Kerr Arkansas River Navigation System in Northeast Oklahoma, it is one of the largest, most inland river-ports in the United States. The Tulsa Port of Catoosa’s unique position allows companies to move millions of tons of bulk freight by barge each year and at a fraction of the cost and environmental impact of rail or truck. One thing is for “shore”; you will have a good time connecting with other LOK members!

Are you a “shore” thing? Click here to register by June 10, 2016.

LOK Legislative Reception
5:00 pm – 7:00 pm (cocktails and heavy hors d'oeuvres)
Dress: Business

After having spent the better part of a year touring the state to learn about the important issues and challenges facing Oklahoma, LOK graduates ask themselves “now what?” Most would say their experience offered a chance to learn of at least one issue that they felt drawn toward and compelled to do something to support and/or look for ways to improve. This is a great opportunity to network with other LOK graduates and legislators to move the state in a positive direction.

February 22, 2017
