The Keep Oklahoma Beautiful Affiliate Forum is an opportunity for our affiliates to be in the audience together amongst their peers. It's an annual event in which we provide vital training for success in their communities, offer opportunities to network and share best practices as well get to know one another. The relationships our affiliates build among fellow affiliates are priceless. When affiliates find themselves faced with challenges, another affiliate may be able to offer advice. They have opportunities to share joys and successes for others to emulate. The forum is held centrally located at different venues around the OKC area. This enables our rural affiliates to attend without traveling too far. Each event is followed by a fun networking activity, which in past years included fun participating in riverboat races, rock wall climbing, ropes course, and more. Topics for the affiliate-only training have included fund-raising, how to get volunteers, grant writing, social media training, and more. We encourage all of our affiliates to take advantage of this wonderful opportunity for connection.
