The Ohio Public Employer Labor Relations Association (OHPELRA) is the largest labor relations association in Ohio that strictly represents management's interests. With over 400 individual members, OHPELRA is comprised of a cross section of public sector employers at all levels, including the state, cities, counties, townships, local government agencies, colleges and universities, and public schools in Ohio.
An OHPELRA sponsor is a significant partner in our education and training programs. OHPELRA typically hosts an Annual Training Conference (our signature event) in February, a summer workshop, scheduled during the summer months, and a one day fall program, usually during September or October in Columbus. In some years, OHPELRA has added additional summer and fall programs in order to support the educational needs of our membership.
We value our sponsors tremendously and want to make sure that we provide the best value to you for the investment you make into this organization. To that end, we do recognize that the needs of each sponsor may differ from sponsor-to-sponsor depending on a multitude of conditions. In 2012, our board reviewed this situation and decided to introduce The Next Generation Sponsorship Structure. This new structure provides sponsors with the ability to choose a level of sponsorship that fits their organization best, including a reduced sponsorship fee for those sponsors that simply want the basics and an a la carte program that reduces costs for sponsors with multiple members and identifies and standardizes benefits.
We hope you find The Next Generation Sponsorship Structure a great enhancement after well over a decade of no changes in the sponsorship fees or benefits. We offer two packages of access to these events to meet you business needs: All Access Sponsorship and Premier OHPELRA Sponsorship.
