The OSAE Annual Conference

Why Should You Attend? 

The OSAE 2019 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 affiliates (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.
