Each year the OCEA Board plans and hosts two annual events for professional development opportunities for employers, university, community college, and government affairs constituents.

Fall Drive In
Minimal costs for a half day of professional development is the goal of this event.  Held the past two years at Honda in Marysville, this Fall's Drive In will be at Big Lots Headquarters in Columbus, Ohio.  Past topics included:

  • Strategies for working with Employers
  • Manufacturing Apprenticeships
  • Legal Updates from an Employment Law Attorney
  • Successes for Liberal Art
  • Employer Panels
  • Much More!

Spring Conference
The annual conference spans three days and is typically held in May each year.  The annual conference brings together over 100 professionals from across the state to share best practices, network, and gain valuable knowledge from state legislators on upcoming initiatives. 

Upcoming Conference Locations:

  • 2019: Kalahari Resort, Sandusky, Ohio
  • 2020: Cincinnati, Ohio
  • 2021: Cleveland, Ohio
