Oklahoma Auditor and Inspector Cindy Byrd will be the featured speaker at the Jenks Chamber of Commerce’s Aug. 19 luncheon, sponsored by the Public Service Company of Oklahoma.

The auditor’s office is responsible for auditing the financial accounts of all government agencies and performs performance and special investigative audits upon request by certain officials or upon petition by the citizens.

Byrd was elected to the statewide post in November 2018, having previously served more than 20 years for the auditor’s office. During her tenure at the auditor’s office, her teams have uncovered $5 million in misuse of FEMA funds and led to criminal charges against elected officials for criminal conduct.

The Aug. 19 luncheon will occur at noon at The Hive, 115 S. First St. in Jenks. Cost to attend is $15 for Chamber members and $20 for non-members.

The Chamber is undertaking precautions to address concerns related to coronavirus. Capacity for the event is limited, masks are requested, and hand sanitizer will be placed at each table. Pre-set lunches will be served to reduce touchpoints.

RSVP for the luncheon by Monday, Aug. 17.
