Twelve county boards of developmental
disabilities had levy requests on the ballot
during the November 3 general election. Of
those ballot issues, 11 have passed, according
to unofficial final results from those countiesí
boards of elections. One has failed.
This year, OACB's Annual Convention will be
an all-virtual, a la carte professional development
experience that will include 9 days of remote
sessions taking place throughout late November
and early December. No attendance minimums,
flexible by-the-registration payment, and zero
session overlap mean more chances to learn
from the safety of your home or office.
Ohioís county boards of DD are dedicated to
the pursuit of equality and social justice.
Recent events and the chronic mistreatment of
Black Americans are in total opposition to our
system's founding principles of equity and
community inclusion. We commit ourselves to
fighting systemic racism in our system and
supporting people and communities of color.
