In mid-March, the Ohio Association of Student Councils will come together for its 66th Annual State Conference. This year's conference will be held March 15-17, 2019. Please note - this is Friday evening through Sunday early afternoon, a departure from our usual Thursday - Saturday schedule.
With special presentations, informative small group discussions, and many opportunities to make new friends and share ideas, the 2019 conference promises to be very special!
Celina High School will be hosting us this year. Located in west central Ohio, the people of the Celina community are excited we are coming and they are working hard to ensure a successful conference. With the assistance of the community and business leaders, administration, and faculty, the students at Celina are doing a great job in getting ready to welcome our advisers and delegates.
Start planning now to attend! As an OASC member school, your school may send up to fifteen (15) student delegates and as many adviser delegates as you’d like. In the event your school is interested in sending more than fifteen (15) delegates, please contact Connie Miley. Students who serve as Small Group Workshop Presenters do not count toward your 15 delegates. All the information a delegate will need to know is contained within the following pages, including how to apply to present a Small Group Workshop. It is a good idea to make sure each of your delegates has a copy of this information for his/her parents.
I hope your school will be represented at our 66th Annual State Conference!
If you have any questions, please contact me:
See you at Celina High School on March 15th!

For more information on the roles, responsibilities and process of applying to become a Small Group Workshop Presenter, please see the information packet linked above.

Extra spaces will be assigned after February 25th. If your registrations are late, you risk being closed out of the conference.
Any school with students attending the conference is expected to have at least one adviser or adult chaperone also present during the entire conference. We facilitate advisor programming at State Conference to provide advisors with activities and ideas they can share with colleagues and their home student council.
Advisers who attend conference will be able to receive contact hours. Be sure to apply ahead of time in your home district. This will be a great opportunity to learn and share new ideas and to form valuable connections with advisors from across the state.
It is recommended that advisers check in at their hotel prior to arriving at the school. There will be a reception for advisors following our opening session, so it will be best to take care of your accommodations beforehand. Please note - information regarding conference hotels is included in the State Conference Information Packet. You are encouraged to secure your reservations early.
OASC State Service Project
Each year, the host school for our Annual State Conference chooses a service project. All schools attending the conference are encouraged to participate. See the Information Packet for details.
Hall of Ideas
A special benefit of participating in our conference is the sharing of ideas. Each school represented at the conference is encouraged to create a display showcasing the contributions of its student council to the school and community. This is your chance to showcase your school's Student Council. Be sure to visit the Hall of Ideas while at Conference and see the amazing things happening at our member schools! Remember - schools with the displays judged "best" will receive a complimentary one-year membership in OASC.
