The OSAE Annual Conference

Why Should You Attend? 

The OSAE 2020 Annual Conference is the ideal venue for association leaders and managers, program specialists and suppliers to discover actionable ideas and strategies through meaningful learning experiences to help you achieve organizational goals. 

Association professionals, CVB staff and industry partners (vendors/suppliers) gain access to all programming, evening networking events and meals – from our afternoon opening session to our closing keynote session. Not only is the OSAE annual conference a great place for networking, it’s an affordable alternative to national conferences that many of Ohio’s smaller associations simply cannot afford to attend. For a much smaller investment, we guarantee overwhelming ROI!

Each year, in conjunction with the OSAE Annual Conference and Professional Development Committees, the OSAE staff work hard to identify great speakers and presenters who can address the challenges and issues our members face no matter their career track. In fact, in recent years, OSAE has moved away from themed conferences as we understand our members want to pick and choose from programming versus having it prescribed to them.


The OSAE 2020 Annual Conference - A Virtual Experience

OSAE 2020 ACWhere and When:

The OSAE 2020 Annual Conference will be held August 31-Sept. 2 virtually. However, Remarkable Lake County, Ohio and the Four Points by Sheraton Cleveland-Eastlake are serving as the virtual Host CVB and Host Hotel, respectively. OSAE's committees are already hard at work developing content, analyzing the format and crafting unique experiences for our attendees to enjoy when they come to next year's conference.

If you'd like to get engaged, please contact either OSAE Manager, Membership & Program Martha Mattson, CTA or OSAE Professional Development Committee Chair Patricia Geary.

We are excited to see you in person soon, but due to COVID-19 risks, we cannot meet face-to-face this year. Despite being online, we promise we'll have world-class presenters, stellar networking opportunities and opportunities for relationship-building that will improve both your professional and personal lives. 

Plan on joining us virtually on August 31-Sept. 2, 2020. We build relationships! We are OSAE!
