Who Can Be a KOB Affiliate?

Any organization, committee, community, county, neighborhood association, city government, chamber of commerce, etc. with a desire to join with other like-minded groups of individuals in Oklahoma to improve the aesthetic, environmental and sustainable quality of life in your area and throughout the state.  This may be a long-established group, it may be a group just getting started, it may be a youth group, a college campus environmental effort, a high school ecology club, a committee of the chamber,  - or a combination of any of these groups.
