25th Annual Meeting and Trade Show

October 12, 2016 - October 14, 2016

The Environmental Federation of Oklahoma (EFO) is pleased to announce the 2016 Annual Meeting and Trade show to be held at the Hyatt Regency – Tulsa Hotel on Oct 12-14. Our Annual Golf Tournament is on Oct 12 and the meeting will begin Oct 13. This year’s theme is “25 Years of Environmental Law, Policy, and Politics—Where Do We Go from Here?”


More than 200 Oklahoma environmental managers, regulators and consultants attended last year’s event. As in the past, this year’s 25th Annual Meeting is oriented toward providing the regulated community with up-to-date technologies and information relevant to environmental operations. You can expect a little something more for our anniversary Conference and for both formal presentations and social gatherings to be informative and exciting.
