STORIES

Join us as we welcome Mark Blakeman to our Business@Lunch.  Blakeman was announced as the inaugural Marilynn and Carl Thoma Executive Director of The McKnight Center for the Performing Arts at Oklahoma State University in March 2017. He brings to the position vast knowledge and direct experience overseeing large-scale construction projects, building programs and raising philanthropic support. 

Blakeman will work with the McKnight Foundation Board of Trustees and provide strategic direction and oversight to The McKnight Center. His scope of responsibility will include branding and institutional visibility, revenue enhancement, operational and strategic planning, outreach and education, governance and financial management. One of his first tasks is to schedule the inaugural season and grand opening of The McKnight Center, which he will give details on at this month's luncheon.

Blakeman will also give attendees a chance to win two New York Philharmonic performance tickets for next year's opening season. Don't miss out on this opportunity!

Jingle Bells Discontinued

After careful consideration, the Stillwater Chamber of Commerce has decided to discontinue the Jingle Bells Sweepstakes campaign. Though successful for many years, the sweepstakes has experienced a steady decline in participation and perceived value of many local retailers.The Chamber would like to use this opportunity to evaluate other economic development initiatives that will continue to communicate the importance of shopping local and supporting small businesses. We very much appreciate our members and the community for their continued support and shared vision to keep our community moving forward!
