    Our membership is composed of individuals committed to supporting our local business community. At a minimum, these individuals attend monthly meetings and special events throughout the year. Some join special committees and even fewer lead these committees or our members, serving as Officers on our Board of Directors. Each year, we honor the service of members who, out of the goodness of their heart and their love of our community, do so much more.

    Please join us in honoring the achievements of two long-time chamber members and officers:

    Virginia Sasser of Sasser & Co. Antiques and

    Dustin Bledsoe of Payne County Bank

    Thank you both on behalf of the chamber, our local business industry and our community.

    They say that when you experience success, it is your responsibility to send the elevator back down for others. Because of the example and mentorship of members like Virginia and Dustin, we have a team of new leadership eager to continue their good work in our community.

    With that, I introduce to you, your new 2023 Perkins Community Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors:

    President - Terrill Story, Hey Sister Boutique
    1st Vice President - Mark Wilson, EQ World USA
    2nd Vice President - Kyle Brandon, Rustic Wraps
    Secretary - Carissa Weitman, Wandering Brew
    Treasurer - Leah Smith, Payne County Bank
    Economic Development - Craig Nichols, Stillwater Martial Arts
    Tourism - Casey Martin, Farmers Insurance
    Historic Preservation - Cassie Wilson, Realtor & Partners in Education
    Ex Officio - Chris Petermann, Payne County Bank

    We are excited to be joined by many non-chamber members this evening as we honor the nominees and winners of six prestigious community awards. It’s important to note that all nominations come from your neighbors - the chamber members in our community. Someone, somewhere saw the good that you do… and was inspired enough to take the time to nominate you for an award this evening… and you probably had no idea anyone was even watching!
