OSAE 2018 Annual Conference: Thank You for Making It a Resounding Success
It's because of you that we achieve great milestones
This year, OSAE held its 2018 annual conference Jul. 25-27 at the Cleveland Marriott Downtown at Key Center in Cleveland, Ohio. We cannot thank you enough for your attendance, engagement and camaraderie at the event. Not only did you attend and participate in lively discussion, you also networked and supported the OSAE Foundation. On behalf of the OSAE and OSAEF Boards of Directors, the organization thanks you.
All in all, attendees who actively participated in this year’s conference gained 10 CEUs for their involvement. This year, OSAE once again held concurrent educational sessions. In addition to presentations from industry leaders, the breakout sessions provided additional hands-on, in-depth analysis of issues that are impacting association professionals in today’s ever-changing environment.
