Greater Oklahoma City is in the geographic center of North America equidistant from the east and west coasts and major trade partners of Canada and Mexico. The ten county region is at the crossroads of the U.S., sitting at the heart of three major national highways on the NAFTA corridor.
There's a reason Greater Oklahoma City is such a great place for business: Location. The ten county region is positioned within a day's drive of the rapidly-growing south-central region (OK, TX, AR, LA) projected to grow more than 44% during the next 25 years.
"We've had an explosion in... this field during the past decade or so. We're in the middle of a revolution here in Oklahoma City."

OKLAHOMA CITY, OKLA., Oct. 5, 2011 - The Greater Oklahoma City Chamber announced the launch of a new OKCChamber.com, with a refreshed design and more interactive features for Chamber members. Taking advantage of new technologies, the site was developed to provide greater access to services and provide tools for Chamber members to promote their businesses to one another.
The fresh look, designed by the Chamber's design staff, is the product of extensive research of current trends, industry benchmarks and member needs. "We designed this site with our members in mind, first and foremost," said Cynthia Reid, vice president, Marketing and Communications. "We wanted a site that was easier to navigate, easier to use, and provided the kind of content and features our members are looking for and expect."
Some important new members-only features have been added to the site, allowing members to promote their services to each other. New features include:
While much of the content carried over, a new site map makes organization more intuitive and easier to navigate. New technology from our development partners allows the Chamber to display its most important content in a more appealing way. Event registration and the Membership Directly flow better with the layout of the site, while providing visitors with new functionality, including:
"From our Economic Development team, to the lobbying of our Government Relations staff, to the Greater Grads program of our Education and Workforce Development crew, there is so much work going on behind-the-scenes to make Oklahoma City a better place to live, work and play," said Reid. "By visiting this new site, we hope our members will get a better understanding of what we do and see the benefit of their membership in this organization."
