Annual Conference programming includes OACAC’s annual diversity workshop, Guiding the Way to Inclusion (GWI) which will be offered on Sunday afternoon and throughout dedicated educational sessions on Monday.  The conference provides an opportunity to build your professional network and experience learning with others who are passionate about the future of secondary education and post-secondary access. Enjoy content-rich sessions, learn from an array of fascinating keynote speakers, and share knowledge and ideas. The 2022 conference program will showcase future directions, best practices, stories of successful collaborations, new ideas, interesting interventions, wild successes, and educational challenges!

Together, let’s explore past lessons learned, how we can navigate change, and develop sustainable solutions for the many community-wide and professional-wide issues we face together.

Keynote speakers, Avery Ware, Rob Franek and Ken Schneck will lead us through these much needed days of professional engagement, restoration and rejuvenation. After a long conference hiatus from live entertainment, we're bringing it back Sunday evening with Elec Simon and Friends.

March 8 update to covid-19 protocols: Last week, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) released new guidelines regarding COVID-19 and mask requirements. In Cuyahoga County, the community level is LOW. Thus, most mask mandates have been lifted. People with symptoms, a positive test, or exposure to someone with COVID-19 should always wear a mask. Find out more about your COVID-19 community level here: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/your-health/covid-by-county.html  OACAC continues to strongly encourage all conference attendees, presenters, and guests to wear masks while gathering closely indoors, during sessions, and while participating in all other conference-related activities regardless of vaccination status when physical distancing cannot be maintained. This means, all session rooms will require masks during conference sessions. Speakers able to maintain six feet of physical distance between themselves and session attendees may remove masks while speaking. Exceptions will be made while actively eating or drinking, including during the conference social. When gathering in hotel common areas for non-conference related activities, masks will be left to the discretion of the individual. To ensure a safe conference experience for all, please practice daily symptom checks and do not attend the conference if you are experiencing illness or symptoms associated with COVID-19. Masks will be provided upon request to any attendee, presenter, or guest during registration.

Refund policy: Refunds will be reviewed upon request up to two weeks (14 calendar days) before the first day of the event. Requests must be sent via email to execadmin@oacac.org . Please include an explanation for your request, the payee and USPS address. You may be refunded any monies less any applicable credit-card processing fees if the original payment was by credit card. Refunds may be issued by OACAC check. Refund checks will be issued no sooner than 30 days after the last day of the event. If an OACAC event is canceled by circumstances beyond the control of OACAC such as but not limited to acts of God, war, terrorist threats, government regulations, public health crisis, disaster, civil disorder, inclement weather, sudden outage of electricity or water at the venue, or curtailment of transportation facilities – to the extent that such circumstances make it illegal or impossible to allow the OACAC event to occur, the participant agrees that they will not hold OACAC liable for the cancellation and/or disruption of the event (if in progress) and thereby request a return of any paid fees including but not limited to conference registration fees, sponsorship commitment fees, exhibitor table fees, meals, hotel and transportation costs.
