We can’t understate the crucial role our restaurant, lodging, and tourism sector plays in boosting Oklahoma's economy. Not only does it contribute significant tax revenues to our state, but it also creates jobs for hundreds of thousands of Oklahomans while actively giving back to our local communities.


But here’s the thing: to keep her industry thriving, we need to keep those lines of communication open with legislators. That’s why it’s so important for us to build and maintain positive relationships, and make sure they understand our industry's priorities when it comes to shaping policies and making decisions, our voices are heard loud and clear. 


Mark your calendars for April 16, 2024! It’s Hospitality Day at the Capital and it’s going to be a game changer. This is our chance to team up with members of the Oklahoma Restaurant Association, Oklahoma Hotel & Lodging Association, and Oklahoma Travel Industry Association. Together, we'll have the floor to talk directly to legislators about the issues that matter most to our industry.


But wait, there’s more! After a day of advocacy, or rolling out the red carpet for "A Tasteful Affair" Legislative Reception. This isn’t just any reception–it’s the event of the year, bringing together over 500 members and legislators. Picture it: Oklahoma’s top restaurants and craft brewer showcasing their culinary and local delights, all in the name of celebrating our state's hospitality. Trust us, you won’t want to miss it.


So mark your calendars, get ready to make your voice heard, and let’s show everyone what Oklahoma hospitality is all about!
