Our Social Responsibility Efforts

Over 1,500 public school business officials (SBOs) rely on OASBO as an essential resource; offering guidance and support as they serve their districts, and providing key programs and services to aid in their continuous pursuit of personal and professional growth and success.

Serving public school district treasurer/CFOs, business managers, food service, transportation supervisors and support staff since 1936, OASBO views its role as a highly collaborative, caring advisor in school finance, professional development and legislative advocacy efforts.

We focus on empowering new and seasoned SBOs to make confident, well-informed decisions leading to the health and success of the districts and communities they serve.

OASBO, a not-for-profit professional association, is headquartered in Columbus, Ohio, and has four statewide and twelve regional chapters. For more information on school business official and vendor memberships, click here.

Our Affiliations

OASBO is a state affiliate of our parent organization - ASBO International. SBOs get the benefits of both state (OASBO) and international (ASBO) membership, and tap into a vast network of resources by joining both organizations.

Our Collaborative Relationships

OASBO works closely with many other Ohio-based education non-profit organizations on important legislative advocacy efforts, professional development opportunities and school districts savings programs. We value these important partnerships, which increase both opportunities for members and the collective effectiveness of our efforts.
