At its Annual Meeting on Thursday, the Tulsa Regional Chamber inaugurated Roger Ramseyer, vice president and Tulsa market leader for Cox Communications, as the 2020 chair of its Board of Directors. Nearly 1,500 attendees were on hand as Ramseyer outlined his five strategic focus points for the organization in 2020: diversity, equity and inclusion; regional branding; direct flights; small business support; and education.

“It is a great time to be a Tulsan, and an Oklahoman,” Ramseyer said during his inaugural speech. “But we must continue to innovate and evolve to ensure sustained growth and long-term economic prosperity in Tulsa.”

Ramseyer succeeds outgoing chair David Stratton, who reflected on the Chamber’s efforts in 2019 around degrees, workforce development, downtown development, direct flights and diversity.

“I cannot help but be proud of how much – as a region – we have really gone places this past year,” said Stratton. “And to be clear, we have moved collectively as a region thanks to everyone’s efforts and commitment.”
