Brianna Wall

Who are you?
I’m Brianna Wall with Oklahoma Electric Cooperative and OEC Fiber in Norman, Oklahoma (Boomer Sooner!). I married my high school sweetheart and we have an 8-year-old second grader who keeps us on our toes!

How long have you worked with cooperatives?
I have worked at Oklahoma Electric Cooperative for over 17 years, but my history with co-ops spans my entire life. My dad retired as manager of an electric co-op in my hometown of Stigler, Oklahoma.

Describe your role.
As manager of marketing & member relations, I have the privilege of leading an incredibly talented team who curates communications and programming for our 46,000+ members in Central Oklahoma. This includes all internal and external communications and marketing materials, website design and management, member programming, legislative and advocacy efforts, efficiency and safety initiatives, youth leadership programs and more.

What do you enjoy about working with cooperatives?
I love the cooperative story and educating others on the significance of our mission. Being created by our members — who overcame overwhelming obstacles — to fill a specific need speaks to all generations of members. Working to creatively tell this story and provide our members with unique benefits to improve their quality of life is a mission I can get behind.

When did you join CCA? Why?
I believe I joined CCA in 2016. Our cooperative received our first-ever national award through the CCA Contest, so I traveled to Omaha for Institute and the contest luncheon, and I haven’t looked back.

Did anything surprise you about CCA upon joining?
I was surprised by how quickly I was welcomed into the CCA community. Everyone is willing to learn and allow others to admire and acquire in a way that makes us all stronger.

How has CCA supported you in your career?
CCA has supported me in several ways throughout my career. It has offered valuable skills-based professional development and networking opportunities, in addition to creating spaces for admiring and acquiring. Being able to say we are national award winners in the CCA Contest has heavily impacted our case for communications and has helped build trust with my co-op’s leadership.

What are your hobbies and interests?
I enjoy supporting my home community of Moore, Oklahoma, by volunteering and supporting small, locally-owned businesses. In 2024, I will serve as chair for the Chamber of Commerce’s board of directors, and I also serve on the Moore Public School Foundation’s board. When we’re not working, my family and I love to travel — you can usually find us on any of the spectacular beaches on St. John in the U.S. Virgin Islands.

Do you have a “bucket list”? What are some of the things on that list?
I’ve had the privilege to check items off my bucket list already (i.e. swim with stingrays and sea turtles), but some other items on that list would be seeing the Northern Lights in person and riding a gondola in Venice, Italy.

Give us something about yourself that is surprising or that most people don’t know.
In high school, I had one of six leading roles in a one-act play that almost won a state championship.

What advice would you give to professional communicators just starting their careers?
Build your network. It’s important to attend professional development opportunities like CCA Institute and PDW, your statewide or regional communications meetings and conferences, and any other opportunity your co-op can afford. This network will help carry you through all kinds of challenges and offer support and inspiration that will improve the quality of your work. They will also be the first ones to celebrate with you!
