The Oklahoma Correctional Association board meeting was called to order by Debbie Boyer at 1:15 p.m. in the Treatment & Rehabilitative Services Conference Room in the Cameron Building, 2901 N. Classen, Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.
The purpose of the meeting is for the board to vote whether to hold an annual conference this year in light of the worsening budgetary situation of most state agencies. Kristin Tims made a motion to not have the conference and to plan other activities deemed appropriate for OCA members. Brenda Anderson seconded. The motion carried unanimously.
There was discussion that in lieu of the annual conference, the association would provide one-day training conferences in several locations around the state at no cost to association members. OCA will absorb the cost of the location, the meals, and the speakers. Sponsors will be obtained to cover the costs to the largest extent possible. If deemed feasible, one-day training sessions will be held in Oklahoma City, Tulsa, McAlester, Lawton and Woodward. A member appreciation/business meeting/awards/scholarships event will be held in the fall for members at no cost.
