Explanation of Cost
Due to increased attendance at OTI, we have outgrown our technology centers and have began using Embassy Suites for our Institute. We are doing our best to keep costs low and still cover costs of the conference. The facility alone costs $12,000, and there is a mandatory $7,000 food minimum we must meet. We have checked several locations, and this is the best deal we could find. We no longer receive funds from the State Personnel Development Grant and are forced to charge $25. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and will continue to provide the best possible transition training at our Institute.

For questions, please contact Ms. Kimberly Osmani, Transition Coordinator, Oklahoma Department of Rehabilitation Services, by phone at (405) 635-2768 or e-mail at kosmani@okdrs.gov
