Summary

When the World Health Organization declared COVID-19 a pandemic, we vowed that the Ohio GFOA 33rd Annual Conference and Membership Meeting would still go on — someway, somehow. It is simply too important to cancel!

Originally, our plan was to host the conference as a hybrid live/virtual meeting, with speakers and breakout sessions available to all attendees, whether joining us in Cleveland or from their homes. However, due to recent spikes in COVID-19 cases and in the interest of attendee safety, Ohio GFOA made the tough, yet necessary, decision to change course: Ohio GFOA’s 33rd Annual Conference and Membership Meeting will be 100 percent virtual. Our virtual Annual Conference sessions were recorded and now available to view on-demand for CPE and CPIM credit!
