Starting Dec. 1, the Tulsa Metro Chamber will officially become known as the Tulsa Regional Chamber.
The chamber’s board of directors unanimously voted to change the organization’s name to better reflect its regional focus.
In a written report to the chamber’s board and investors, Mike Neal, the chamber’s president and CEO, says, “We understand that today’s fastest growing economies across the country are taking a regional approach to economic development success. To tap the enormous potential of the Tulsa region, we must continue to pool our assets and resources.”
In 2010, the Tulsa, Bixby, Broken Arrow, Jenks, Owasso, Sand Springs and Sapulpa Chambers signed a compact to collaborate on regional economic growth.
