    January 22, 2014 To All Members: There was an error in scheduling this year's€™ Stars of Life event and we wish to make the following corrections: Spring educational conference is April 1, 2014 at the Oklahoma History Center Stars of Life Banquet and Awards Ceremony is April 2, 2014 at the Oklahoma History Center and Miss Oklahoma will still appear and give a brief speech during the event. We are also planning our usual EMS Day at the capitol at 10:00am on April 2 and are urging our star's to also attend this event followed by tours in the Oklahoma City area being determined as this announcement is released. We again urge all member agencies to submit nominations for Stars before January 31 so we can make two selections, one from a rural service and another from a large service that will be sent to Washington, DC to attend the American Ambulance Association Stars event at the end of March.

    Due to a scheduling mix up the Educational Conference will be on April 1, followed by the Stars Event on April 2. The deadline for Star nominations remains on January 31, 2014. All nominated Stars will be featured during EMS Day at the Capitol at 10am, April 2 and will then be hosted during yet to be announced tours in the OKC metro after the capitol event. While the Stars event is open only to member EMS agencies, there is still time to send in new membership applications to OKAMA and be eligible for this show case event. Miss Oklahoma will still be part of this event on April 2.

    April 1, 2014 will be no joke when OKAMA opens the door for this years Spring Education Conference, followed by the Stars of Life Banquet and Awards Ceremony on April 2 at the Oklahoma History Center located just across from the state Capitol complex. Although the conference is open to non-OKAMA members, the Stars event is strictly member agencies only. There is still time for agencies to become members through one of the above links. This year OKAMA has confirmed that Miss Oklahoma, Kelsey Griswold will attend to sing our National Anthem and present a short address to those in attendance. She will also be available for photographs with the Stars. Two Oklahoma Stars will be selected to attend the American ambulance Association Stars of Life program in Washington, DC.
