Chamber Staff

A Letter from our CEO:

The Poteau Chamber is located in one of the best small cities in Oklahoma and is surrounded by great communities with people who have a vision for growth and prosperity.  Our Eastern location in the State places us regionally only 30 miles from Fort Smith, Arkansas.  Poteau is a bedroom community with large windows of opportunity that has more to offer than most towns its size.  We are your connection to business, tourism, events and things to see and do.  With a population of more than 8,000 and serving the county seat of over 50,000, Poteau has definitely set its mark on Eastern Oklahoma.  Browsing through our website you can connect to our many events such as: The Award Winning Poteau Balloon Fest, Rodeo’s, Golf Tournaments, July 4th Celebrations, Christmas Parades and places to eat and shop.  Get connected to information about real estate or business relocation and areas for cycling, mountain biking, running, walking, water sports, motorcycling, hunting and fishing.  Our sports complex includes soccer, baseball and softball fields.  Plan your wedding or event at the Donald W. Reynolds Community Center or try your skills at the local skate park on Broadway.  There is nothing to big or small for our community, community groups, civic organizations, local businesses and our many volunteers.  You will see the results as you enter our city.

Come see why we are above the ordinary
