Member Communications
Our member communications will keep you up to date! Join our mailing list today. 
 
The ORA's weekly email blast, A la Carte, is the association’s newest communication tool as of 2018. Each Wednesday, members receive an email summarizing top-priority events, programs, education opportunities, and other important news.

The newsletter is distributed to over 2,000 industry professionals statewide and is our prime source for dispersing time-sensitive information. Exclusive Partnerships are available to members-only and have first right of refusal on renewing the following year.

For more information on A la Carte partner scheduling, contact Shannon Moad at (405) 819-3170 or shannon@okrestaurants.com.
 

The ORA’s bi-monthly e-newsletter, The Advisor, is the Oklahoma foodservice industry’s hub for all of the up-to-the-minute news and events that affect you and your business.
