On Feb. 2, 1942, delegates met in the Huckins Hotel to draft a constitution and bylaws in addition to electing the first directors.
Elected to serve on the board were John I. Taylor, president, Comanche County rancher; Frank B. Trimmer, vice president, Bryan County peanut and cotton grower; Clyde Newberry, secretary, Kiowa County farmer; E.G. Jeffrey, treasurer, Canadian County farmer and stockman; Lewis H. Munn, Alfalfa County farmer; Ray Howard, Harper County wheat farmer and rancher; and Buster Brown, Tulsa County dairyman. However, soon after, Trimmer and Newberry resigned due to career opportunities in different states. Charles L. Roff of Bryan County and Harold Davis of Kiowa County took the two open spots on the board.
Clarence Roberts presided at the beginning, and Roscoe Keiffer served as temporary secretary. The constitution and bylaws committee included Keiffer, J.B. Cronkite, Clarence Reeds, John I. Taylor, John H. Kaney, Lyman T. Hickman and Clyde Newberry. A meeting of the members was held the following day to confirm the decisions made by these delegates.
