Tulsa Peace Fellowship

There never was a good war or a bad peace. ~Ben Franklin

How is TPF structured?
We are a grassroots, bottom-up, civic-sector organization, organized as a collective. We are governed by an entirely volunteer Steering Committee, equivalent to a Board of Directors, including three volunteer officers (President, Vice-President and Secretary/Treasurer). The Steering Committee consists of the ten or so most active and engaged members of the Fellowship, selected annually. We also have a non-voting Advisory Group, consisting of former board members, our financial supporters, and wisdom keepers. There are various sub-committees or task forces with specific peace-related missions, organized by issue, which you can join through our Ning pages. We are a registered non-profit.

Who are the members of the TPF Steering Committee?

The Steering Committee has approved Bryan Cheek as the new Vice-President for TPF, replacing Carl Reynolds.  TPF gives its hearty thanks to Reynolds, a member of Veterans for Peace (VFP) and is grateful for his service as TPF V-P, 2009-2011.  We're also extremely glad to have him remain a member of the TPF Steering Committee (the 'board').
