A planning kickoff meeting for the 61th Ohio State Convention being hosted by Area 53 will be Monday, July 18, 8:00pm to 9:00pm. This will be an online meeting with a dial-in number as well as a web presentation. To receive the meeting details (conference phone number and the meeting site), visit the 2017 State Convention Homepage and SUBSCRIBE to the newsletter. Details on connecting to the meeting will be sent out Monday afternoon.
One goal of the kickoff meeting is to work out the kinks for conducting some of the initial planning meetings online. If you are interested, but not able to connect to the online meeting on Monday, do not worry. The 2017 convention does not occur until a year from now; you will not miss any critical discussion and no decisions will be made at this meeting.
Some topics that might be discussed on Monday include: appointing a meeting secretary (volunteer), the theme “Supporting Our Future,” the committee officers and subcommittees, ideas for entertainment that will surprise and delight, good communications and promotion ideas, hospitality room, and the Area 53 experience from hosting the 2013 convention.
