The Ohio Municipal Leagues 65th Annual Conference – October 26th ~ 28th, 2016


This year the Ohio Municipal League will be holding its Annual Fall Conference in conjunction with the Municipal Finance Officers Association of Ohio. There is separate conference registration information for each association. Because of the interests of OML & MFOA members alike there are a number of workshops & special meetings being offered. The Conferences will begin Wednesday October 26 th ending Friday October 28 th.

This year, in order to create a more efficient way of distributing materials, you will receive all available materials in advance of the Conference via email. Registering for the conference will require a valid email address, the email will also serve as your registration confirmation. We will no longer pass out paper handout packets at the conferences. Please feel free to print out these materials and bring them with you to the Conference and/or download to your devices such as your IPAD or Tablet. It is important for you to decide the best method of using the materials to prepare in advance. We believe a preview of the information can be extremely beneficial in preparing for the Conference. Some presenters may bring handouts with them that were not made available for distribution prior to the conference. (Please Note: Emails are sent through the same software as the OML Legislative Bulletin, anyone who has “unsubscribed” from the program must re subscribe or use a different email address.)

In order to ensure the conference materials reach attendees in enough time to prepare we have set a Registration and Payment Deadline of October 17, 2016. All paid registrations will receive the confirmation email with materials during the week of October 17 th. If you have any questions about the new registration process please feel free to contact Zoë Wade at either Zwade@omlohio.org or 614-221-4349 ext. 11.
