60th Annual Conference & Trade Show


In light of Gov. Mike DeWine’s Executive Order, OAPT has postponed our conference due to limitations on all large group gatherings. We will be rescheduling this year’s conference for June 7th-10th at the Embassy Suites Dublin, 5100 Upper Metro Pl., Dublin.

Below you’ll find room booking information. Please make sure you rebook your room as soon as possible.

On our agenda you’ll notice a few things have been moved and a topic was added for T-reports. We’re working on adding a special event or two since it will be nice outside. We’ll add those to the agenda and update our website, so please check back from time to time. Our vendors are all on board with the change! That is exciting to see. Please join us in June for a great learning and networking opportunity.

In closing, we are closely following Governor DeWine and his plans as the pandemic situation remains fluid. Please know we that we are optimistic that we will have conference in June. In the event we are not able to have conference we will email everyone two weeks before the conference. See you all soon!

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!
