Exclusive Event – 811 Day
Brought to you by our Meeting Host Sponsors
Featuring our Guest Speaker
J. Kevin Stitt
Governor of the State of Oklahoma
On August 11 – known as 811 Day, the Pipeliners Club of Oklahoma City, in conjunction with OKIE 811, is holding our first meeting of the new meeting year.
We’re honored to have as our speaker, Governor of the Great State of Oklahoma, the Honorable J. Kevin Stitt. Governor Stitt is the 28th governor of Oklahoma and he’s leading the state with a vision to become Top Ten in critical categories, from government accountability to job growth, infrastructure, education and more. He is an entrepreneur and businessman who founded Gateway in Tulsa, Oklahoma, in 2000. Starting Gateway with only $1,000 and a computer, he grew his business into one of the top 20 mortgage lenders and servicers in the nation, operating in more than 40 states and servicing more than $20 billion in residential mortgages.
What is 811 Day you ask? Well, according to the Pipeline Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA), it is (link):
“811 Day is an annual initiative led by the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA) to ensure the practice of safe digging is echoed in communities by calling 8-1-1, a nationwide toll-free number, before any excavation project.
Calling 811 or visiting www.call811.com, has proven to be the foremost preventive measure in excavation safety and damage prevention. Research has revealed that if someone calls 8-1-1 before they dig, they have a 99 percent chance of avoiding an incident, injury, harm to the environment and even death.”
In Oklahoma, our Go-To for notification is the OKIE 811 organization (www.okie811.org).
