The President’s Corner 

A message from Kim Engle

Dear OBA Members: 

Hello everyone, 2022 seems to be off to a more favorable start then where we were last few years at this time. During the past year the OBA board of trustees continued to work diligently to foster strong working relationships between schools, business partners and the Ohio Attorney General’s staff. We believe that this has paid off based on the attendance of the 2021Spring Virtual conference.  We want to thank everyone who attended, contributed and presented at the conference, we felt it was a great success.

Our organization is of course still looking to increase membership of schools and business partners as this can only improve our understanding of improvements needed in Higher Education today. I invite all of you to invite your colleges and friends in this line of work to consider joining us.

Additionally, we will be looking for treasure, president-elect, four-year public, two public, private and Membership at large board membership if any of you are interested please reach out to Laura or myself.
