NwOA offering town hall scholarship

Northwest Oklahoma Alliance (NwOA) is offering a scholarship to attend the 2019 Oklahoma Academy Town Hall. The Town Hall nomination application for invitation consideration is due by Aug. 19.

The theme for this year’s Town Hall is Oklahoma Energy: Optimizing Our Resources for the Future. It will run from the evening of Sunday, Oct. 20th through noon on Wednesday, Oct. 23rd. The event will be held at the Winstar World Casino Resort and Convention Center in Thackerville, approximately 30 miles south of Ardmore.

According to Town Hall Co-chairs Mike Ming and Stuart Solomon, optimizing resources, technologies and behaviors is now more important than ever. The focus for this Town Hall is on energy resources and determining how best to maximize Oklahoma’s role as an energy leader to enhance our economy, consumer needs, and the environment in order to create a robust future for Oklahoma.
