OCPA Annual Conference

February 24 & 25, 2022

Doubletree Hotel & Conference Center - Worthington, Ohio

In the interest of public health and all attendees' safety, the OCPA Board has decided to postpone our Annual Conference until February 24th and 25th. The best information we have right now indicates that the current COVID-19 surge is likely to peak and then quickly decline around the end of January, and we believe that it should be significantly safer to host an in-person conference in late February.

Currently registered attendees will automatically be moved to these new dates. While we hope to see many of you there, we understand that some may be uncomfortable with attending an in-person event or may have other commitments during the new dates. As a result, OCPA will provide a full refund of the conference registration fee to any existing registrants that officially cancel their registration and request a refund prior to February 4th. More information on this process and a link to an online form will be emailed directly to those who are currently registered shortly.

Though our central and unwavering focus on student development and supporting students is timeless, the way in which we carry out that work and the needs of the students we serve is constantly evolving with the changing world around us. Join OCPA for our 2022 Annual Conference - Reimagining Fundamentals to examine the ways in which our institutions, and each of us as practitioners, are growing and adapting to ensure that we continue to meet the changing needs of our students.

Conference Registration is now open! Our Early Bird rates are availble until November 12, 2022.

If you are a member of a partner organization, such as SOCHE, you can register at the OCPA Member Rate on the registration page.

Please note, OCPA is a volunteer managed non-profit organization and is unable to provide refunds for professional development event registrations.
