The Ohio Association of Area Agencies on Aging (o4a) is a nonprofit, statewide network of agencies that provide services for older Ohioans, people with disabilities and their families. The Association engages in national and statewide advocacy to address issues which have an impact on the aging and disability network and older Ohioans and people with disabilities, provides services to members, and serves as a collective voice for Ohio’s Area Agencies on Aging (AAAs).

o4a’s Advocacy Conference offers important information about the upcoming state budget and initiatives, connecting with your legislators, as well as the latest updates about the new federal administration and Congress.

Every two years Ohio begins their biennial budget deliberations that must be completed by June 30th. This year 2019 begins another cycle with new Governor Mike DeWine and his incoming administration as well as many new legislators. The new administration will be charged with getting their proposed budget to the House of Representatives by March 15, 2019.

The 2019 o4a Advocacy Conference offers the opportunity to meet and hear from the new administration. Other stakeholders also share their priorities. You will leave the conference armed with the latest information and resources to help shape the state fiscal year 2020-21 biennial budget. This is an opportunity you don’t want to miss!

2019 Advocacy Conference presentations are now posted online for download.
