SWOSU Hosting 100 Ideas Session on August 28


A session on 100 Ideas for Oklahoma is coming up on Tuesday, August 28, at Southwestern Oklahoma State University in Weatherford.

The state-wide initiative will be held from 4-6 p.m. at the Memorial Student Center on the SWOSU campus. The public is invited and encouraged to attend. 

Oklahoma House of Representatives Speaker Lance Cargill, working with an advisory panel of dynamic leaders, is looking ahead to the future and planning the 100 Ideas for Oklahoma sessions.

The 100 Ideas initiative seeks citizen input to create a stronger grassroots approach to governing while also soliciting the excellence of Oklahoma’s citizenry. Through a series of town hall meetings and interaction with the state’s citizens called IdeaRaisers, the 100 Ideas Initiative will develop a comprehensive vision as the state moves into the next 100 years of Oklahoma’s state history.

At the end of the year, the 100 Ideas Initiative will publish a book filled with the best 100 ideas from IdeaRaisers across the state. The book will serve as an agenda for Speaker Cargill and as a plan for Oklahoma’s second century.
