Join the Roundtable

Join the Oklahoma Business Roundtable - Membership Advantages

The Oklahoma Business Roundtable which is a non-profit, non-partisan 501c6 organization, was created twenty-five years ago. It serves as Oklahoma’s primary economic development support group in which our state’s top business leaders participate.

For every dollar that the Roundtable has spent, $6 more have been invested in growing Oklahoma. So far in FY16, $2.4 billion in new investment has been projected by companies with plans to expand or relocate to Oklahoma.

Why the Roundtable is important:

  • We are the only statewide economic development organization focused solely on advancing Oklahoma’s economy through business retention, expansion, new business start-up and recruitment.
  • We provide needed private funding for promotion and assistance to programs to help job investment and expansion.
  • We serve as a depository for private funds to be used for strategic economic development efforts.

Member benefits, in addition to supporting economic development growth for our state, include:

  • Networking with business colleagues and top state government leaders in small, non-partisan gatherings at least three times per year.
  • Educational or professional events/opportunities related to workforce and economic development.
  • Increased customer base due to growth of economy and jobs in Oklahoma.

Meetings:  The Roundtable meets twice annually.  This includes an annual membership meeting in Tulsa in the spring and a general membership meeting in Oklahoma City in the fall.  In addition, the Governor hosts members and guests at an annual holiday dinner in December.

Leadership:  A 14-member private sector executive committee oversees activities of the organization.  The Roundtable President and CEO is Ann Ackerman, Ph.D.
Annual Membership Dues: Annual dues are $5000, single payment or quarterly option.
The Roundtable fiscal year is July 1 – June 30.
