Who We Are
OCCE began in 1922 as the Oklahoma Association of Commercial Organization Secretaries (OACOS), officially changing to the Oklahoma Chamber of Commerce Executives in 1949. The Oklahoma Chamber of Commerce Executives (OCCE) association is the only organization in the state dedicated to training and the ongoing professional development of chamber professionals. The primary goal of OCCE is to serve its membership by providing quality professional development and continuing education opportunities for local chambers of commerce, their staff, and board members. OCCE membership consists of more than 70 local chambers that includes the executive and staff from across the state.
OCCE leadership is provided by a 13-person volunteer Board of Directors comprised of highly skilled Chamber of Commerce professionals. Under this leadership, OCCE encourages the highest professional standards for the men and women in chamber of commerce management and to advance close unity among its members.
