2022 Spring Conference Excitement!

We are very excited about the 2022 OHSPRA Spring Conference on April 28-29! Keeping our fingers crossed that we are all able to get together in person for the first time since 2019. The dwindling virus numbers and the fun of possibly seeing everyone has us cautiously optimistic. 🤞

From Washington Court House to Columbus to Avon…from Shaker Heights to Milford to Sandusky…from Kettering to East Liverpool to Huber Heights…from Dayton to Warren to Tipp City…from rural to urban to suburban to everyone north, south, east and west across the state…we hope to see you all this spring.

This year has already been an exciting one for Ohio! The Ohio State University brought home the Rose Bowl Trophy. The Bengals returned to the Super Bowl (Who Dey!). The young Cavaliers are exciting and among the best in the league (Let ‘em Know!). The NBA All-Star Game was in Cleveland. And…the annual OHSPRA Awards luncheon will make its triumphant return to Spring Conference!

Thank you all who entered this year. We received a record number of entries! We look forward to celebrating with everyone as we “Let Your Light Shine” at the awards luncheon.

Be on the lookout for OHSPRA Spring Conference registration link and event details coming soon. We hope to see you there! 

O 👏👏👏H 👏👏👏 I 👏👏👏O!

Take care, fingers crossed, stay safe!

Lou DeVincentis
President, OHSPRA
