OPA Quarter and Half Century Clubs


Being a member of any profession for 25 or 50 years is not only a personal achievement, it is an important milestone that should be recognized. That’s why the Oklahoma Press Association recognizes the contributions of those who have served in the newspaper industry by inducting them into the Half Century and Quarter Century Clubs.

Anyone may make nominations for the Quarter or Half Century Clubs. Self-nominations also are acceptable. New members are inducted during OPA's Annual Convention. To apply for induction in either Club, review the criteria below and submit the form along with a biography detailing years of service to the newspaper industry. Please include a color photograph of the nominee with the nomination form.
