Q: What does the registration fee cover?

In order to provide a well-organized and comprehensive conference, we must charge a registration fee. Hosting an in-person conference costs OKTSA about $100,000 to put on. Conference costs include, but are not limited to, meeting spaces, A/V, conference management system, event supplies, awards, merchandise, judges gifts, conference staff lodging, and food and beverage for conference staff and volunteer judges. If you have any ideas on how to offset the cost of the State Leadership Conference, please contact
