Needing Some Encouragement During the COVID-19 Crisis?

We've had positive feedback from members regarding the video messages posted by former presenters. Therefore, Jeff Groth reached out to Kevin DeShazo, presenter at our 2019 Annual Conference, and asked him to share a brief message with OACP members during this difficult time. Click anywhere on the image to download this brief message of encouragement. Please note that there is an unavoidable (and slightly annoying) delay in the recording with the speaking. To find past encouraging video messages and additional articles from Greg Young, Click here.

We have also created a page called "Information on COVID-19" (available to the public on the front-end of our website) where the public can find useful information to help them navigate this crisis. Direct your community here if you think they'd find it helpful.

 OACP Marketplace

At OACP Marketplace on our website is listed Vendors who are currently registered for the upcoming, re-scheduled 2020 Annual Conference Trade Show.

Because these vendors have chosen to keep their registration for the conference, we wanted to provide additional value to their registration as a simple thank you.

Those vendors listed with links to their websites paid an additional amount. Please consider reaching out to all of these OACP partners when you are looking for products, services, and resources for your agency.



2020 Annual Conference

Although much is uncertain, until further notice, the Annual Conference has been rescheduled until the end of June. The Executive Board will continue discussing options with the current COVID-19 circumstances and deciding if this is the best option moving forward. We will keep everyone updated in the coming weeks.

Some of you may have received an invoice reminder for the conference. These are automatically generated by our system. Please disregard for now.
