As Ohio’s county board of DD system begin
a new year filled with hope, possibility, and
optimism for brighter days ahead, OACB is
pleased to announce that our table of organization
has been updated to more accurately reflect the
way we support our members. OACB’s Bridget
Gargan, Adam Herman, Rick Black, Lori Stanfa,
Willie Jones, and Erich Hiner have received new
titles effective January 13, 2021.
Thanks to the more than 2,000 county board of
DD professionals who joined us for OACB's
first-ever Virtual Convention in November and
December! Continuing professional development
units (CPDUs) can now be claimed by session

Responding to concerns that some people with
developmental disabilities may have to enter a
hospital/emergency room without the assistance
of their direct support professional or family
member due to COVID-19 protocols, OACB has
created a one-page (front/back) document that
can be completed by a provider, county board,
or family member to share key health info with
Ohio’s 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.
