Connect with legislators and gain insights from key policymakers at the 2024 State Legislative Conference.

2024 promises to be another challenging year at the Ohio Statehouse. It is imperative that school board members, superintendents and treasurers actively convey their districts' needs and priorities to legislators. The 2024 State Legislative Conference is a golden opportunity to do just that, providing a platform to emphasize the need for a robust public school system and to humanize these issues by sharing the local impact.

The morning session offers school district leaders briefings on proposed legislation and updates useful for their discussions with legislators later in the day. To maximize impact, attendees are encouraged to schedule office appointments with legislators for that afternoon anytime after 1 p.m. Legislators will be invited to join district leaders during the luncheon.

This year's State Legislative Conference and Luncheon will take place at the Sheraton on Capitol Square in the Governor's Ballroom (2nd Floor) 75 East State Street, Columbus OH 43215.

Reservations must be made by noon on Thursday April 18, 2024.
