Annual Conference

CONNECT 2021 FINAL

January 28 & 29, 2021
FROM THE COMFORT OF WHEREVER YOU CHOOSE!

We have all spent much of the last year re-inventing how we Connect with one another and with our students. From Zoom Meetings to virtual processes, we have had to make adjustments to the way that we interact with each other both personally and professionally. This year, we will connect 100% Virtually via Zoom for the Annual Conference to ensure the Health & Safety of all OCPA Members and make the conference as accessible as possible for as many people as we can. At the close of last year's conference, we asked you to consider what campus partners you work with regularly to enhance the experience of students on your campus and to consider sharing your story of collaboration. That invitation remains at the center of the call for this years Virtual Conference. Take a good look at the people you have been working with to navigate the challenges of this past year and find someone who might not normally attend OCPA to present with. We invite you to tell us how you Connect!

OCPA wants to provide members the most value for their membership and provide quality professional development, while recognizing the reality of the financial constraints that all institutions are currently facing. As such, registration will be entirely free to all active / paid members of OCPA.
