    Join WASRG on Tuesday, July 19 at 2:00 PM EST for an insider update from the Sooner State, where lawmakers will have recently adjourned their session and the primary results will be in. Our speaker, Gwendolyn Caldwell, is the President of Caldwell and Associates and has over a fifteen years of experience at the state capitol.

    Prior to her current position, she led the government affairs division for both the State Chamber of Oklahoma and the Tulsa Regional Chamber - managing a team of five lobbyists.

    Caldwell has had the opportunity to work on several state senate campaigns, which has helped her build unique relationships with caucus members. She also served as the legislative director for the Oklahoma State Senate, which entailed direct hands-on work not only shepherding legislation through the capitol but also ensuring the vote count on agenda bills.
