Conference Registration Fees
In order to cover expenses not paid for by OEM, OEMA, exhibitors and sponsors, the Oklahoma Emergency Management Association is charging a conference registration fee of $50 through July 13 and $100 after July 13, which will be collected at the conference. This fee will be waived for the first 100 local emergency managers (or their designee) who register for the conference (only one per jurisdiction). There is no registration fee to attend Training Day. For questions regarding registration fees, please email OEMA Board member Glynadee Edwards, firstname.lastname@example.org directly.
