Thank You for Making OSAP AC '24 an Event to Remember!

The conference was one for the books

Thank you for making our experience in Sharonville a terrific one! 

Thank you for a great AC 2024On behalf of the boards of both OSAP and OSAP Foundation, I want to personally thank you for attending the OSAP 2024 Annual Conference at the Sharonville Convention Center. Both the center and Visit Cincy made the event a memorable one - from the food to the experiences to the perfect service. In addition, as our attendees, you made the experience rewarding for the organization, your colleagues and the volunteers who committed themselves to giving you a great experience.

To Andy, Jeff and all the wonderful team members at Visit Cincy, OSAP thanks you for providing opportunities for members that will be long remembered.

To Jim, Liz, Fisher and Laura, thank you for the remarkable service, food and ambiance you created for our members at the center. To whomever follows your efforts next year, they will have big shoes to fill.

I'd also like to thank our phenomenal sponsors who made the event possible. This list includes Platinum Sponsor Saling Simms Associates at Steward Partners; Gold Sponsors Community Brands, Destination Toledo, Experience Columbus, LIG Solutions, Visit Canton, Visit Cincy and the Sharonville Convention Center; Silver Sponsors D2L, Cherry Valley Hotel & Conference Center, Results at Hand and Shores & Islands Ohio; Bronze Sponsors i3 Merchant Commerce and Kalahari Resorts & Conferences | Sandusky and our Benefactors: Burgie Media Fusion and Picture America Event Photographers.

In addition to all the fun and learning, your generosity helped the OSAP Foundation raise more than $4,400 for its efforts to "pay it forward" and strengthen Ohio's association industry. Thank you to all those who donated items and for the efforts of our amazing volunteers - Mary Ciesa, Lisa Carlisle and Karen Diehl - in garnering your charitable support for the 2024 Brown Bag Raffle.

The professional speakers and subject matter experts who presented this year helped make this conference one that will live in the memories of each of you, and we thank each of you for engaging with them and making them feel welcome at OSAP AC '24. Our speakers presented wonderful education designed to meet your needs.

As always, it was our pleasure to serve you, and it was my honor to oversee OSAP's eighth conference as your president & CEO. Thank you for making the organization - your organization - such a wonderful place to be. To the board members who attended - both past and present - I appreciate your commitment to OSAP and the OSAP Foundation.
