Board of Directors

The Oklahoma Hall of Fame and Gaylord-Pickens Museum are governed by a board of directors representative of the state of Oklahoma.

In addition to its primary governing board, the organization has two associate boards. The Teen Board is made up of high school students and responsible for raising funds for free field trips. The Second Century Board is made up of young professionals who hold an annual fundraiser to support the Museum's free cultural and educational programs.
