OAMES is giving back!  Will you help?
  • OAMES started the tradition of community giving in 2019 by adopting an Ohio-based organization to support at our Annual Meeting & Exhibition. This year we have selected 4 Paws for Ability based in Xenia, Ohio. They will be in attendance to share their mission which aligns in many ways with OAMES' - improving lives!  Please join us in supporting this incredible group with our on-site fundraiser and consider bringing items from their wish list to donate at their exhibit table!  You can view this inspiring video to learn more about their work and click here to learn more about giving.  _______________________________________________________________________________________
