Congratulations, President Pringle

On January 19th, TBB EVP and General Counsel Miles Pringle was sworn in as the 2024 Oklahoma Bar Association president. He will lead the OBA’s 17-member Board of Governors, which meets monthly and governs the 18,000-member association. Supreme Court Chief Justice M. John Kane IV administered the oath to officers and new Board of Governors members during a ceremony at the state Capitol Courtroom in Oklahoma City. 

“The bar association is in a good place today because of the leaders we’ve had. I hope to build upon that this year. This is a big honor for me, and I appreciate the privilege to serve as president,” Miles said during his inaugural address. 

A native Oklahoman and third-generation attorney, Miles is licensed to practice law in Oklahoma, Missouri and Texas. He has served the Bar Association and legal community for many years, including as governor and vice president of the OBA Board of Governors, chair of the OBA Financial Institutions and Commercial Law Section and chair of the OBA Legislative Monitoring Committee. In 2018, he was awarded the Oklahoma County Bar Association Geary L. Walke Briefcase Award, and in 2021 and 2022, he received the OBA President’s Award.    

Miles is also a recognized leader in the banking community and very involved in the local community. He has been a teacher for the Oklahoma Bankers Association Intermediate Banking School and other banking organizations. In 2022, he was named on the 40 Under 40 list of national emerging community bank leaders by the Independent Community Bankers of America. Miles is also a board member of the Oklahoma City Rotary Club (Oklahoma’s oldest and largest civic organization) and has served on the boards of local nonprofits.
