BILL SHERMAN: Executive Director, Central Oklahoma Manufacturers Association

Bill Sherman is the Executive Director of the Central Oklahoma Manufacturers Association. In July 1999, 19 manufacturers from a five-county area in central Oklahoma formed the Central Oklahoma Manufacturers Association (COMA). The membership has grown to more than 150 statewide.

The meetings are bimonthly (Feb/Apr/Jun/Aug/Oct/Dec).  In each of the listed months the Association’s Board of Directors invites expert speakers to make presentations on topics of interest to manufacturers. In December of each year, the Association hosts a Legislative Forum. Members of the State Legislature attend and share their thoughts with and receive comments and recommendations from the manufacturing community.

“To promote cooperation, collaboration and educational opportunities within the manufacturing community in Oklahoma”.

Working together with the manufacturing industry in the Central Oklahoma area to facilitate training, enterprise, and growth in and for manufacturing companies, through close partnerships within the state of Oklahoma. Offering technical assistance and advice, we aim to make manufacturers more competitive, innovative and successful.
