The 2012 PSA Annual Meeting and Reunion–October 26 to 28 in Tulsa–will be a once in a lifetime event. The Annual Meeting will be held in the ornate Gothic lobby of the Philtower, and the Reunion dinner will be at Waite Phillips’ other home, the magnificent Villa Philbrook.

In addition, you will have the opportunity for a guided historical tour of downtown Tulsa explaining the Philtower, Philcade, Philbrook and the Phillips’ impact on Tulsa. And when that is done, you will be able to tour the offices of Waite Phillips in the Philtower and his penthouse apartment atop the Philcade.

All these opportunities wrapped into a single weekend is not likely to happen again, so don’t be left out.

Your charge for this event is just the cost of the dinner at Philbrook, $30. You can make your reservation online. The firm cut-off date for reservations is October 15. Persons showing up at Philbrook without a reservation cannot be accommodated. (You can attend the Annual Meeting and other events without a reservation and at no charge.) You are encouraged to bring your spouse, family members, or any other guests you believe would enjoy this unique event.
