“The Oklahoma Emergency Management Conference took place
in Norman August 14-18, 2016 and I was happy to hear many
good comments about the quality of the training.  The Oklahoma
Department of Emergency Management and the OEMA partner to
host the conference annually and the planning team literally
works throughout the year to provide a quality conference.  Pre-
conference training sessions were conducted on Sunday and
Monday with over 300 people receiving training and about 400
people attended the conference.  We had many quality speakers
who provided in depth presentations on various aspects of
emergency management.  Emergency managers from across
Oklahoma shared experiences of the past year and rekindled
friendships that are so important in this business.  Many sponsors
and vendors contributed to the conference.

The OEMA conducted elections for the offices of President and
Secretary as well as the Area Vice Presidents and Alternate Vice
Presidents.  Effective October 1st, Rob Hill, Stillwater Emergency
Management Director will assume the duties of President and
Wendi Marcy, Lincoln County Emergency Management Director,
will take over as Secretary.  The Area Vice Presidents and
Alternate Vice Presidents were selected as follows:  Northwest:
Steve Loftis and Cy Howenstine, Northeast: Tim Craighton and
Jamie Ott, Southeast: Ernie Willis and Kevin Enloe, Southwest:
Skip Wilkerson and Polly Edwards, and Central: David Ball and
Don Lynch.  Debi Wagner, Vice President, Glynadee Edwards,
Treasurer, and Keith Shadden, Parliamentarian, continue to
serve in their roles.   I congratulate all of those elected and
appreciate their willingness to serve the association.  

I want to thank the association for allowing me to serve as your
president the past three years.  It has been an honor!  I look
forward to my role as Past President.  With great confidence in
the future for our organization I look forward to passing
leadership of the organization to President Elect Rob Hill.  Please
support Rob and the OEMA Executive Board as we go forward.
