Governor adds Altus to ‘Oklahoma Works’ Workforce Initiative Tour


OKLAHOMA CITY – Governor Mary Fallin has announced Altus and three other additional Key Economic Network regional meetings with business leaders, education professionals and others to support the “Oklahoma Works” education and workforce initiative. Each of the nine events, held at locations across the state during the next several weeks, will be co-hosted by the State Chamber of Oklahoma.

The additional meetings will be in Altus, Shawnee, Woodward and Choteau. Earlier announced meetings are set in Oklahoma City, Lawton, Tahlequah, Ada and Tulsa.

Oklahoma Works is a prosperity-boosting initiative that seeks to increase educational attainment and match skilled workers with rewarding careers. By building local partnerships between state agencies, educational institutions, the business community and other stakeholders, Oklahoma Works aims to ensure students and adults find rewarding, lucrative careers and businesses have access to the highly educated and skilled workforce they need to succeed in today’s modern economy.

At each event, check-in and registration begins at 2:30 p.m.; the program begins at 3 p.m.; and a reception will follow at 4:30 p.m. The meeting in Altus, the Southwest Key Economic Network, will be held on Tuesday, Sept. 15, at the Museum of the Western Prairie.

Education and business professionals who are interested in registering for this event should email the State Chamber of Oklahoma at registration@okstatechamber.com.
