About OCCE


The Oklahoma Chamber of Commerce Executives (OCCE) is the professional organization for the chamber of commerce executives and staff in Oklahoma. OCCE operates with the primary goal of serving its membership and encouraging the highest professional standards for the men and women in chamber of commerce management. OCCE began in 1922 as the Oklahoma Association of Commercial Organization Secretaries (OACOS), officially changing to the Oklahoma Chamber of Commerce Executives in 1949.

OCCE is governed by a 9 person board of directors who serve a three year term.  The organization is managed by Ruth Littlefield, owner of Littlefield Management Solutions, who has been in the chamber industry for almost 25 years.  

With more than 75 members, OCCE is the only organization in the state dedicated to the development of chamber professionals. Not only does OCCE develop programs for continuing education, we offer multiple scholarships each year for executive training to Chamber Management Institute (CMI), the OCCE Annual Conference, MAKO, the Center for Chamber of Commerce Excellence (CCCE), and the Institute for Organization Management.
