Annual Winter Conference

The Ohio Township Association's Annual Winter Conference is held in Columbus each year to further the education of township officials and provide a forum in which they may exchange ideas. With more than 90 educational workshops, a tradeshow with over 160 vendors and several networking events, the Winter Conference is a great opportunity for OTA members to advance their knowledge of townships in Ohio.


Registration for the Winter Conference opens every year in early November, which includes an online option on our website and a paper option included in the Ohio Township News magazine. The 2018 conference will be held Jan. 31-Feb. 3. 


If you are interested in attending the Winter Conference Trade Show as a vendor and/or sponsor, please go to the vendor opportunities section.
