Ozark Florist Association in Springfield, Missouri, is a nonprofit organization established in 1947 by a group of floral design industry leaders. Our mission is to provide lifelong career support for member florists from Arkansas, Missouri, Kansas, and Oklahoma.
Through all these years, our foundation has maintained a strong and vibrant spirit. With industry leaders dedicating countless of voluntary hours to support members, we have been able to evolve and meet the demands of an ever changing profession.
After years of holding meetings in different locations around the four-state area, we found a home in Joplin, Missouri, in 1975. That office was strategically selected to provide ease of travel, since it was the geographical center of the membership.
Our Newest Home
Four years ago, we moved four miles west to Downstream Casino and Resort in Quapaw, Oklahoma. This has proven to be a wonderful venue that provides entertainment, great natural beauty, and outstanding service to our member attendees. As we speak, the facility is being enlarged and redesigned to further suit our needs.
This year, we put our trust on a handful of people to make our events successful. We count on them to provide exceptional work, especially for the benefit of the individuals we serve. The 2015 OFC Board is made up of the following:
