New Welcome Guide available

By Molly M. Fleming / Member News / July 27, 2020

One of the best ways residents feel at ease in a new city is by knowing information about it. The Greater Oklahoma City Chamber makes that material easy to find every year in its annual Welcome Guide.

The 2020 Welcome Guide is now available and is packed with information for Oklahoma City’s newest residents. There are sections loaded with detail about the city’s history, neighborhoods, schools, climate and weather, the economy and, of course, what to do and where to go for fun.

The guide is an informative tool for companies and businesses to use when recruiting new talent to the city. Companies can work with the Chamber to have a page created in the guide with specific details about the opportunity to live, work and play in Oklahoma City.

The staff at the Chamber enjoys compiling the Welcome Guide every year because it’s a great way to reflect on the changes the city has seen. This year’s cover features Scissortail Park, which will soon celebrate its first anniversary of being open. The guide includes information about how Oklahoma City residents invested in themselves again by passing MAPS 4. There are also details about the city’s growing industries, such as aerospace, logistics and distribution, and biomedical.

Residents can read about new attractions such as the Oklahoma Contemporary Arts Center and learn more about one of the city’s original biomedical institutions, the Oklahoma Medical Research Foundation.

This year’s Welcome Guide content includes mentions of the pandemic’s effects, with events being canceled as the coronavirus has spread in the community. But as the economy improves and the city’s venues welcome visitors again, the team at Better Life HQ will update the guide with the newest information.

The Greater Oklahoma City Chamber office is still closed to visitors, but the 2020 Welcome Guide is available online. To receive a printed copy of the Welcome Guide, visit ABetterLifeOKC.com and request for one to be mailed to you. Businesses that want multiple copies can call the Greater OKC Chamber’s Jeannee Nichols at 405-297-8900.
