"OTIA is the cement that holds the tourism industry in Oklahoma together. For 35 years OTIA has produced the Conference on Tourism, one of the most worthwhile events for tourism in Oklahoma. It has been refreshing to me to watch over the past six years how the members and the Association management has maintained the highest degree of integrity and concern for those involved in bringing the multi-billion dollar tourism business to Oklahoma. The OTIA has been the champion for all things related to attracting tourists, business travel, and events to Oklahoma. We look forward to continued involvement with OTIA."
