Guidelines Relating to Unclaimed, Undocumented, and Abandoned Property


Posted on 12/31/2012

After two years of the Oklahoma Museums Association Abandoned Property Task Force conducting extensive research and meetings with Oklahoma museum professionals, the Oklahoma Museums Association Board of Directors adopted the Task Force recommended Guidelines Relating to Unclaimed, Undocumented, and Abandoned Property at the September 26, 2012 meeting. These guidelines, developed from other state best practice models, Oklahoma museum professionals input and legal counsel are intended for Oklahoma museums to use as a framework for handling unclaimed, undocumented, and abandoned property. 

The Oklahoma Museums Association would like to thank:
OMA Abandoned Property Task force members Kristin Mravinec, Chair; Jennifer Holt and Delaynna Trim
OMA Administrative & Program Associate, Stacy O'Daniel
Attorney, Michael Joseph, McAfee & Taft
Law Student, Charlotte Hale, University of Tulsa College of Law
