Partner with OCA

Welcome from the Sponsorship Coordinator

OCA is proud to partner with leading graduate programs and publishing companies in and around Ohio. Through our robust Partners Program, we link our membership to opportunities that support their academic and career interests.

The funds our partners graciously give help to offset the expensive conference costs associated with facilities, food, and keynote honorarium. We have been able to keep conference registration costs low, decreasing them in the last year for undergraduate and graduate students and only increasing $5 for regular members in the last 4 years. In a time of limited professional development funding, OCA is dedicated to bringing quality programming to the area while keeping the conference cost-effective for professionals, faculty, and students. Thank you to our partners for helping us in these efforts!

Along with our Partners Program, additional opportunities for sponsorship are available. I welcome the opportunity to discuss how we can work together to elevate one another in the communication discipline.
