How We Serve Our Members

The OMEPA Board of Directors meets monthly. In most cases, our meeting will produce newsworthy information and updates to our ongoing business. Our communications director will provide membership updates in the form of e-mailed news blasts along with the content available on the OMEPA website.

  • In the case of breaking news or business updates that require immediate release, our members will receive those updates via e-news blasts in a timely manner.
  • OMEPA quarterly webinar update where all members are welcome to attend and communicate their questions and comments.
  • Annually, OMEPA holds a conference, typically in the fall, over a 1 1/2 day period. Program content varies but includes legislative updates, vendor presentations, and networking opportunities.

Thanks to Our OMEPA Sponsors
