We Are Pleased to Announce Our 2024 Annual Training Conference

Register Through April 26th

Where will you be on May 9th and 10th? We hope joining us at the Hyatt Regency Columbus for our two-day annual conference! This year’s event is packed with opportunities to discover new ways to deliver services, program innovations, and how we derive strength from our work.


  • The opening keynote from Matt Selker, Modern to Post-Modern Leadership: Discovering the Difference, will explore our collective capacity to lead not only in title but through action.

  • After that, you will have your pick of content from six sets of ten concurrent sessions (that's 59 breakout sessions), including several that will be county-led on the topics of contract monitoring, the power of social media, maximizing allocations, and workforce best practices to name a few.

  • ODJFS' Adult Protective Services section is offering scholarships* and training certificates that fulfill state training requirements for APS staff AND the new Department of Children and Youth is providing a track of sessions highlighting important initiatives now under their umbrella.
    *Contact for more information and scholarship eligibility.

  • This year, the state monitor and BCFTA teams staffing Ask the Fiscal Expert will be joined by ODM's County Engagement team giving you the opportunity to put faces with emails and get your county-specific questions answered in wider array of program areas.
