Kathy Collins has been the Executive Director of Tulsa Town Hall since 2007, but this speakers’ series has been enriching the cultural experiences of Tulsans since 1935. A small nonprofit with a staff of two and a dedicated Board, the mission of Tulsa Town Hall is to provide a dynamic speaker series in order to open minds, stir curiosities, and inspire imaginations.
Prior to this position, in addition to serving on the Tulsa Town Hall Board, Kathy was part owner and operator of McBirney Mansion Inn for nine years.
Her love of the arts called her to serve on the Mayfest Board and staff, as well as working in numerous areas in the Junior League of Tulsa. She has served on the Tulsa Schools Foundation at its inception and has been a mentor in the Tulsa Public Schools.
