Since 1889, the Greater Oklahoma City Chamber has proudly served as the voice of businesses in the Oklahoma City metropolitan area. The Chamber’s capacity to successfully engage in the political process is vital to continued economic growth and a high quality of life in our region.
In 2010, the Greater Oklahoma City Chamber strengthened its ability to effectively engage state and local leaders with the creation of the Greater Oklahoma City Chamber Political Action Committee (Greater OKC Chamber PAC). Since then, it has grown into one of the top political action committees in the state.
The Greater OKC Chamber PAC was created because our ability to elect pro-business candidates is stronger collectively than it is individually. The outcome of elections has direct consequences for the bottom line of your business and the direction of our state’s economic policy. It is therefore imperative that we work together to elect pro-business leaders who will support the Chamber’s Legislative Agenda. As a supporter of the Greater OKC Chamber PAC, you will ensure the Chamber has the resources necessary to positively impact political races across the state.
Please support the Greater OKC Chamber PAC. By working together, we can help build upon the tremendous successes of today for an even brighter future in Oklahoma City.

WHAT IS THE GREATER OKC CHAMBER PAC?
The Greater Oklahoma City Chamber Political Action Committee (Greater OKC PAC) was organized to better fulfill the Greater Oklahoma City Chamber's mission of creating a more business-friendly environment in Oklahoma. The PAC is funded by contributions from individuals* who share in this mission.
WHY DOES THE CHAMBER NEED A PAC?
Decisions made at the state capitol have a significant impact on the success of our businesses, as well as our city's ability to recruit new businesses and grow the economy. Therefore the PAC will support the election of candidates at the state level who favor a strong business climate conducive to job creation and growth, a strong school system and a progressive future for Greater Oklahoma City.
