Frank Keating named to OCPA Board
The Oklahoma Council of Public Affairs (OCPA) today announced that Frank Keating, the former governor of Oklahoma, has been elected to serve as an OCPA trustee.
“I have admired the commitment and mission of OCPA for many years,” Keating said. “I am honored to join this board as it continues to create pathways of opportunity for the most vulnerable through responsible policy solutions.”
Keating has spent more than 30 years in public service, serving as Oklahoma governor, an FBI agent, U.S. Attorney and state prosecutor, and member of the Oklahoma state House and Senate. He retired as president and CEO of the American Bankers Association after heading the organization from 2011 to 2015.
“Governor Keating has a long and distinguished record in both the public and private sectors,” OCPA President Jonathan Small said. “He knows firsthand the critical role free markets, limited government, and individual initiative plays in ensuring a prosperous and free society. We are honored for him to serve as a trustee. ”
Keating also held prominent positions in the U.S. Department of Treasury, Department of Justice, and the Department of Housing and Urban Development during the administrations of Presidents Reagan and George H.W. Bush.
“We are truly fortunate that Gov. Keating has joined the OCPA board,” OCPA Chairman Larry Parman said. “His experience and knowledge are tremendous assets to our organization and our state.”
