About Us.

Over 80 years as an organization
Philosophy

Theory. Research. Application.

The Ohio Communication Association (OCA) is one of the oldest state associations of communication in the country! As such we are dedicated to providing our members with opportunities to publish in our Journal, to present at our Annual Conference, and to engage on our Website.

The Ohio Communication Association (OCA) is one of the five oldest state communication associations in the US.  We honor that history as we continue to serve our members. Our goal is to provide platforms that foster innovative teaching, opportunities to publish in our journal, present at our annual conference, and serve the discipline by partnering with OCA.

As president of OCA, I often hear stories from members that our annual conference was the first forum where they presented their research as undergraduates or graduate students. Our executive board is proud of the legacy we’ve built across two-year and four-year colleges and universities. Moreover, the board is grateful that our members continued to be a part of the association as they developed their careers.

This website is designed to provide valuable resources for our membership. The site includes information related to current events, employment opportunities, OCA events, information about our partners and other valuable resources. Thank you to all our members for their continued support. If you are visiting our site, please consider joining our association. If I can answer any questions or provide more information, I’d love to hear from you.

Welcome,
Tammy Bosley, MA and Doctoral Candidate
President
