About the Northwest Oklahoma Alliance
It would be nice if communities could be the same way they were twenty years ago, but nothing stays the same. Change can mean adversity and change can mean opportunity. Uniting into one regional organization provides an opportunity for constructive change.
Residents across Northwest Oklahoma recognized the need for an organization to work for the entire region instead of just focusing on certain areas. The Northwest Oklahoma Alliance is an organization designed to coordinate, consolidate, develop and promote regional resources. We provide a platform to unite Northwest Oklahoma.
Northwest Oklahoma exhibits symptoms of out-migration, an over qualified workforce, and a lower than average wage base. In order to find solutions to Northwest Oklahoma’s challenges, it will take the combined effort of our communities working as a unified body.
The NwOA is looking for business and community leaders to help create a vision for the region. It is imperative that decision makers have the opportunity to join forces with state agencies to develop an organization that is a central location of information for legislative issues, business recruitment, resource consolidation, and opportunities for economic growth. The NwOA has identified four industry sectors which are Agriculture/Tourism, Business/Industry, Education/Health Care, and Transportation/Utilities. The organization will work through these sectors to shape the future of our region.
