The Oklahoma Taxidermists Association is a non-profit organization striving to better
the art of taxidermy and to further educate our members.  Membership normally
ranges from 100 to 150 members yearly.  Members meet quarterly for informative
seminars, workshops and competitions.  Each summer the association hosts its
annual convention and competition where taxidermy competitors come from
Oklahoma and surrounding states to compete, learn and enjoy fellowship.  It is truly
one of the best state conventions currently being held.  Each spring the association
offers its members an all-day workshop with one of the industries leading
taxidermists in specific fields.  The OKTA offers a certification program in 8 different
categories.  Annual membership is $35.00 for an individual and $40.00 for a family.  
Lifetime membership is $400.00.  The members of the Oklahoma Taxidermists
Association welcome you to join our great association.  Please take time to check
