Claremore Collective recently joined forces with the Tulsa Young Professionals Organization (TYPROS) on Feb. 28 to represent the needs of young professionals at the state Capitol. Approximately 85 people were in attendance from the region, about 15 from Claremore. “We are grateful to join a seasoned organization such as TYPROS for this inaugural trip to the Capitol,” said Jeri Koehler, government relations crew leader. “We set a goal to have 10 young professionals take Tuesday off and join us. We’re thankful to have exceeded that goal. It’s important we lean in on issues important to attracting and retaining young professional talent in Claremore, today’s trip to Oklahoma City provided that opportunity.”

TYPros, Claremore Collective partner for YP Day at the Capitol
More than members of Tulsa's Young Professionals (TYPros) visited the State Capitol Tuesday for YP Day at the Capitol, the organization's annual legislative advocacy trip. This year, TYPros partnered with the recently formed Claremore Collective, a regional young professionals organization. The group traveled to Oklahoma City to speak directly with legislators about a set list of priority issues, including increasing education funding, criminal justice reform, expanding voter access, diversifying the economy and supporting diversity and inclusion measures.
“YP Day at the Capitol is one of the most important engagement opportunities for our members throughout the year,” said 2017 TYPros Chair Stephanie Cameron. “It provides a chance for them to learn about our state's legislative processes and to connect with our elected officials. The goal of the event is to help our members feel empowered to influence the future of our state.”
