We are excited to have you join us in Dublin for our 59th Annual Conference & Trade Show! The registration table is in a slightly different spot this year… a little further to the right in the Atrium.

May we help you with questions? Anyone at the registration table, or wearing an OAPT shirt will be happy help, and make your conference as productive as possible.

Follow along on Facebook with the hashtag #OAPT59 and of course, with #MoreThanDriving.

Thank you for supporting our association and investing in your success.




The Ohio Preservice Team has put together two great advanced bus driver courses this summer! Join us at Apollo Career Center (6/11-6/12/19) or at Austintown Intermediate School (6/18-6/19/19)! 

Dr. Nancy Blackwelder will offer a special presentation at Apollo Career Center (6/10/19) and at Austintown Intermediate School (6/17/19).

Registration for Dr. Blackwelder’s presentation, and for the Advanced Classes is handled through the Allen County ESC website.

OAPT is proud to announce that our school transportation license plate was approved, signed into law, and we have received a sample plate produced by the Ohio Bureau of Motor Vehicles. Visit the Ohio Bureau of Motor Vehicle’s website for details on purchasing this plate to support student safety programs in Ohio!



OAPT is as strong as its membership, and we need you to continue our tradition of excellence!

Memberships are due for renewal by July 1st — but we strongly encourage you to renew at the time of conference registration each year.

Existing members should have received an automatic invoice, which you can pay securely online with a major credit card. Simply log into myOAPT and pay online.  (REMEMBER: Dues are no longer included in the conference registration.)

As we transition to this online payment system, we are aware of a couple of instances were payment was made, but not properly recorded. If you believe you have already paid, but still received an invoice, please forward details on the payment including check number, or Paypal confirmation number to treasurer@oapt.org so we can ensure the issue is resolved quickly.

If you attended our Annual Conference & Trade Show, but did not renew your dues, your membership will expire on July 1st.  Current dues are required to receive the “Member Rate” on future conferences.

We value your investment in OAPT, and look forward to working with you!
