February AGM Recap

We kept our business meeting VERY brief, but two new officers were elected, please come say hi at the next social. The overwhelming majority of the time we had was dedicated to our #IDEAS4MAPS Panel (detailed here). Below are a few photos and the full video of the event. We had to put the camera at the back to get everybody in, so expect a few audio challenges, but hopefully those who couldn’t attend can learn a thing or two about this process that will be ongoing during 2019 until we vote on a MAPS 4 ballot initiative, likely late in the year.

A tremendous thanks goes out to our panel, and of course to those in attendance.

2019 Annual General Meeting at Plenty Mercantile

Please note, this year’s Annual General Meeting will NOT be on the second Thursday of the month, but rather the first Thursday, due to not wanting to conflict with Valentine’s Day. Our event, on February 7th, will be at Plenty Mercantile, who will also be our food sponsor.

This year’s format will be a bit different. We’ll, of course, take care of our organizational business up front. But instead of a single speaker, as we’ve traditionally done, we’ll have a full panel of guests, discussing the topic of #IDEAS4MAPS. Downtowners, this is your time to engage your civic leadership directly on this important topic!

Remember that ALL are welcome to our events, but only members are eligible for benefits such as voting and prizes. If you’re not yet a member, use the subscribe buttons at the top left of every page. Members, please come to the meeting prepared to:

December Social Recap

Very excellent talk this month by Oklahoma City historian and author Bradley Wynn this month. Make sure to watch the informative video (please consider subscribing to our channel). Thanks to all that came, especially those that bought up all of the books that Bradley brought with him. For those that attended but were not able to get a book, you can pick one up at Full Circle Books, among other places (such as Amazon). If you weren’t able to make it, you also missed out on some donated prizes, which were OKC Streetcar swag packs.

Thanks so much to our food sponsor, Louie’s Midtown, who provided a VERY generous spread, and to our beverage sponsor, Elk Valley Brewing.

December Social at the Edge

Join your neighbors at The Edge at Midtown club house for our December social. Our speaker will be Oklahoma City historian and author Bradley Wynn, who literally wrote the book on Midtown!

October Social Recap

Electric scooters are all the rage in downtown OKC currently, but there’s some public confusion on the policies for riders.

Here are a few photos from the event as well:
