2020 OCRA Annual Conference

CANCELED

2020 ANNUAL CONFERENCE:  CANCELED

Ohio colleagues and OCRA family,

Based upon your feedback, consultation with the Governor's Office, and negotiations with the Renaissance Columbus Westerville-Polaris, the 2020 Annual Conference - OCRA's Centennial Celebration - has been canceled.

We ask for your patience as we work through the next steps of officially canceling the 2020 Annual Conference which was scheduled for September 11-13.  Over the next few weeks, we will:

  • Contact registered attendees, vendors, speakers, and guests of the 2020 Annual Conference to ensure that this notice of cancellation has been received by all affected (You may receive multiple notifications. We apologize for any inconvenience that may cause.)
  • Process refunds of all registrations, sponsorships, raffle ticket purchases, etc. (Please note that we will not be able to begin processing refunds until September 1, 2020.)
  • Plan and announce an online/virtual silent auction opportunity to support the OCRA Cardinal Foundation

If you reserved a room under the most recent hotel room block, you will receive an automatic cancellation notice from the hotel.  However, if you do not receive that notice within the next few days, please remember to cancel your overnight accommodations at the Renaissance Columbus Westerville-Polaris at least 72 hours prior to your check-in date by calling 833.427.0292. 

Because of the many opportunities available to earn online CEUs, OCRA will not be converting our in-person conference to a virtual event.  Instead, we encourage you to save the date for our 2021 Annual Conference scheduled for April 9-11, 2021, at the Renaissance Columbus Westerville-Polaris.  Also, be sure to be on the lookout for announcements regarding OCRA virtual meet and greets which will be scheduled during the fall and winter months.

Finally, thank you for your continued support of your OCRA and our profession at this time.  We are Ohio Family.  We are Ohio Strong.  We are Ohio Proud!

Tammy McGhee, 2020-2021 OCRA President
