OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) _ About 12,000 Pre-Paid Legal Services Incorporated delegates are in downtown Oklahoma City for the second and final day of the company's annual convention.

The Ada-based company used to routinely bypass Oklahoma City when it came to selecting sites for its convention, but the increase in hotel and meeting space in recent years has changed that.

Pre-Paid's chief financial officer, Steve Williamson, praises Oklahoma City's progress since the year 2000 and says he doesn't think the company will move it convention site in the near future.

The company has a ``hold'' on dates at the Cox Convention Center through 2012.

On the agenda for the convention today is a speech by company founder and chief executive officer Harland Stonecipher.
