Celebrating 50 Years of Service
to the Tulsa Region

In 1967, the number one song according to Billboard charts was “To Sir with Love” by Lulu. “A Man for All Seasons” won the best motion picture award at the Oscars, and a gallon of gasoline was only 27 cents. That was also the year that INCOG was created by forward-thinking local officials to provide a forum for addressing regional challenges.

This year INCOG celebrates this major milestone - our 50th anniversary - with many events to commemorate the occasion. INCOG Board Chairman, John Smaligo has appointed a committee of regional leaders to plan and implement these activities. Serving as the honorary Chairs of the 50th Anniversary celebration are former City of Tulsa Mayor Robert LaFortune who was instrumental in formation of INCOG and served as one of the first INCOG Board Chairmen and former Tulsa County Commissioner John Selph who served as INCOG Board Chairman from 1997-2012.
