Newkirk’s Annual “Business Women’s Luncheon” will be held tomorrow from noon ‘til 1 at the reopened Stagecoach Restaurant. Guest speaker is Elaine Dodd, Executive Vice President of the Oklahoma Banker’s Association who’ll be sharing on “How To Keep Your Money Safe in the High Tech World.”

Admission is $8 and includes desert, drink and door prizes.  Tickets are available at the Newkirk Main Street Office on North Main.

Dodd spent 22 years in law enforcement doing investigative work for the Oklahoma Bureau of Narcotics, retiring in 1995 as the director. Her tenure there allowed opportunities for investigating white-collar crimes as a diversion investigator, as well as training for officers and medical professionals.

Dodd joined the OBA in October 2003 and since then has provided fraud training to thousands of bankers and customers across the state. In February 2013, she was awarded the Brad Edwards Consumer Champion Award by the Oklahoma Attorney General’s Office. And, in April 2013, she was inducted into the Oklahoma Women’s Hall of Fame.

For six years, she coordinated the community outreach effort for Leadership Oklahoma, helping to start local leadership groups, facilitating retreats and teaching and enhancing skills on a local level.

Dodd holds a bachelor’s degree in political science (criminal justice) from the University of Oklahoma.
