OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) _ Mayor Mick Cornett announced Monday that Oklahoma City will host the annual meeting of the U.S. Conference of Mayors in 2010.

Cornett says that hundreds of mayors from across the nation generally attend the annual meeting, and guest speakers often include U.S. presidents and other national political and cultural figures.

California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger, U.S. Senator Hillary Clinton and New Mexico Governor Bill Richardson all spoke at this year's annual meeting in Los Angeles.

The meeting was held in Las Vegas last year and Chicago in 2005.

It'll be held in Miami in 2008 and in Providence, Rhode Island, in 2009.
