Meetings are open to OKCRWC members and their invited guests. Please text or call the club at 405-397-4257 to RSVP. We serve complimentary muffins, coffee and tea at each meeting. Networking starts at 10:30AM and program kicks off at 11AM.

Learn how we appoint judges and why it’s not working. We’ll look at two issues:

  1. No judicial officer has ever been voted out in a retention election, so they effectively serve terms for life.
  2. The critical need to repeal Oklahoma’s Judicial Nominating Commission (JNC).  Politics should not be dominated by progressive trial lawyers but rather the people’s elected officials.
