This week, the Shawnee Civic and Cultural Development Authority (SCCDA) Board of Trustees welcomed Katy Fleming on board as Spectra's new general manager over the Heart of Oklahoma Exposition Center.

She replaces previous manager Erin Stevens, who took the position in the fall of 2019 when Spectra became the expo's venue management provider.

Fleming said she is glad to be here.

The transition comes in the middle of a challenging time, as the expo is gearing up to host the IFYR in July.

“I know we have quite a bit of work to do,” she said.

Fleming said she brings with her 20 years experience in the field.
