June 9-11, 2023

Nationwide Hotel and Conference Center,

Registration is Now Closed

State Convention is a wonderful time to come together in League, participate in dynamic workshops, share ideas and successes, plan for our League's future, catch up with old friends and make new ones. Every two years, League members from across the Buckeye State gather together to share success stories, learn best practices, and hear about the latest developments with the Ohio League. 


This year's convention will have something for everyone. Workshops and caucuses will include topics such as serving diverse voters, hosting candidate forums, and the impact of partisan gerrymandering. You'll also get a chance to strengthen fundraising, social media, and advocacy skills, as well as enjoy inspiring keynote speakers.
