Political Partners Program
Are you active in local politics?
Do you know a local elected official in metro Oklahoma City?
Are you interested in leveraging your relationships to benefit your industry and career?
If yes, you should be a political partner!
Political Partners help OKCMAR effectively represent the interest of our members through advocacy, mobilization and monitoring local cities and towns in the Okla. City metropolitan area. If you share a personal relationship with local elected officials or attend your local city/town council meetings, we need you! By signing up to be a political partner you will help us reach our goal to have one Political Partner for each local city/town.
You can help take OKCMAR’s grassroots political efforts to the next level.
