InterCity Visit 2021
June 7 – 9, 2021
The Longview Chamber of Commerce & Tulsa Regional Chamber Board of Directors invites you to participate in the InterCity Visit to Tulsa, Oklahoma / June 7 – 9, 2021. This trip provides our community leaders the opportunity to discuss challenges and opportunities our community is facing. The visit also provides an opportunity for interaction among city leaders and facilitates an exchange of best practices and lessons learned.
Why an InterCity Visit? The visit is designed to get new ideas. It will provide an opportunity to introduce our delegation to innovative programs and impactful projects that may be adapted and implemented in our community. Candid speakers will alert our delegation to the challenges and pitfalls with which they are currently struggling
To date seven InterCity Trips have been completed. Feedback from attendees asked the planning team to consider visiting a community “a little more like us.” Like Longview, Tulsa also had a good foundation to build on as a result of a strong community and business leadership. They have done an excellent job on focusing on amenities, housing, education, healthcare, social and civic capital, transportation, and redevelopment of their downtown! They focus on how far the dollar can go, great commute times, excellent weather, and picturesque outdoors (hmm…sounds familiar!).
As a participant you will be able to focus on best practices and experience true peer-to-peer learning. The networking and relationship building through shared experiences will help our leadership move forward on building a common foundation of understanding. Delegates will become more cohesive team working to solve problems on behalf of our community
Activities begin Monday at 1:00 p.m. on June 7, and will conclude Wednesday afternoon at 1:00 p.m. Each participant is responsible for securing their own travel and hotel accommodations. A registration fee of $300 will help defer the cost of prepared materials and meals. We recommend participants make hotel arrangements with the Hotel Indigo Downtown Tulsa as soon as possible.
