Out of concern for the health and safety of conference attendees, staff, and our business partners, OSFMA is canceling the Annual Conference scheduled for April 14-16, 2021 in Albany, Oregon. A virtual conference will not be held in place of what we hoped would be an in-person event.
As our school members prepare for and see a return of students in buildings this spring, we felt holding an event would compete with the herculean task of bringing learning back in-person. All of this in addition to limitations to meetings in place based on the guidance for Linn County where our conference would be held.
OSFMA is planning to hold a one-day conference in October on the in-service date. Whether this conference will be held in-person or virtually is unknown. Additionally, it may be possible to hold a portion of the meeting regionally, in-person with a virtual component. More details will be forthcoming as we learn the date of the inservice, the topics of workshops, and the limitations of county guidance.
For our business partners, we have some opportunities we’re working on. We also would love to hear from you if you have ideas about connecting with school members. Additionally, we now have a form for you to submit workshop ideas for conferences and webinars to be held throughout 2021. Head to our workshop form to submit your idea.
As always, we have our OSFMA News magazine published quarterly. Opportunities for advertising and content are available to business partners. Please let us know if you would like to submit an article for publication or want to advertise.
