Registration and Payment Policies


Updated May 12, 2021.

Effective July 1, 2021, OASBO is offering live, in-person events with an option to attend live virtually. There are different fees for each option, but with either of those registration options, the session recordings will be made available after the events. As a result of these changes, new registration and cancellation policies have been implemented.

Live In-Person & Live Virtual Event Policies

Registration & Payment
During the online registration process, you will be asked to select whether you are attending in person, or virtually. Due to room capacity, limited seating is available for live in-person attendance, thus seats will be assigned in the order the registrations are received. Registration for in-person is open online until ten (10) business days prior to the event. No registrations will be accepted on site.

You may register with a credit card or a purchase order. We accept the following major credit cards: Visa, MasterCard, and American Express. If using a purchase order number to register, check or credit card payment must be received prior to the event. Contact hours or CPIM credits for your attendance cannot be issued and verified until your invoice is paid. (Purchase orders are not considered a form of payment). 

Please note that membership dues must be paid in full in order to receive member pricing. 

Invoices
Upon registering for an event, the registrant will receive two emails: one containing the invoice (whether paid in full or reserved with a purchase order number), and one registration confirmation email with event details. The invoice email will come from info@oasbo-ohio.org and has a subject line that says “OASBO Invoice.” 

If you do not receive this email, you may view, print and/or pay your invoice by going to My OASBO > My Profile > My Account > View Account History. 

Payment terms on invoices are Due Upon Receipt. OASBO reserves the right to place an organization on credit hold for non-payment of invoices. Credit hold means that no one from your organization may register for any events until all outstanding invoices are paid.

Confirmation Emails
You will receive a registration confirmation email. This email contains the event date, name, and location. If you do not receive a confirmation email, you are not registered.

Cancellation/Refund Policy
Please note: This policy does NOT apply to Annual Conference and Leadership Institute cancellations.

If you:
Cancel ten (10) business days prior to event = 100 percent refund, or no charge to the district.

The following actions will result in no refund of registration fees, if paid, or an obligation to pay your outstanding invoice, if unpaid:
 - Cancel less than 10 business days prior to event 
 - Switch from in-person to virtual attendance less than 10 business days prior to event 
 - Do not cancel and do not attend 

No substitutions are allowed.

No credit will be issued for future events.

Event cancellation requests should be completed in your OASBO profile. To do this:

  • Click the My OASBO link on the website. It will prompt you to log in.
  • Once logged in, click the My Profile button in the gray box. On the next page, click on the Event Change/Cancellation Request link on the left side of the page under My Profile.
  • Enter the event name and the date of the event you are cancelling.
  • Click to continue & confirm & then save changes.

In the event you do not have access to the OASBO website, cancellations may be sent via email to acctg@oasbo-ohio.org.

Inclement Weather Policy/Calamity Days
OASBO will cancel an in-person event when the county in which the event is taking place has declared an emergency level of two or three. In that case, OASBO will transition that event to online-only participation. If there is a level two or three emergency in the area an attendee resides and he/she therefore cannot travel to the in-person event, the attendee can attend the event virtually.

If an event is changed to online only due to inclement weather, there will be no refunds or fee credits issued due to pre-paid event and administrative costs.


Annual Conference Cancellation/Refund Policy

If you:
Cancel 10 business days prior to event = 100% refund, or no charge to the district.
Cancel less than 10 business days prior to event = no refund.
Do not cancel and do not attend = no refund. 

If you do cancel less than 10 workdays prior to the first day of the event, you must return your name badge to OASBO.

Substitutions
Registrants who are unable to attend the event may send a substitute attendee from the same organization. If the substitute is a non-member replacing a member, the difference in registration fee will be charged to the organization. Please email the substitute’s name to acctg@oasbo-ohio.org and mail the original attendees name badge back to the office. 


Continuing Education/Maintaining Licensure/Contact Hours
After completion of an OASBO event, and upon payment, each participant will be issued Contact Hours for the number of hours of instruction received. For your convenience, you can print documentation of your contact hours earned. Log into your My OASBO page. In the gray box on the left that says “Welcome back” you can generate your transcript by date range, or generate your full transcript. 

Contact hours do not appear on your transcript immediately. Once you attend the event and OASBO accounting confirms that you have paid, your hours are verified, and should appear on your transcript approximately five business days after the event has concluded.

CPIM Credit
CPIM credit is given for attendance at some OASBO events. After attending an OASBO CPIM-approved event, you must log your participation in that event on your Treasurer of State (TOS) MyCPIM account. OASBO then verifies that participation, which authorizes TOS to issue the CPIM credit to your account. No credits are issued until both the TOS annual $100 certification fee is paid and the OASBO event fee has been paid. If you have any questions regarding CPIM credit, please contact Nadeen Askew.

College Credit
Through a partnership with Ashland University, OASBO can offer college credits for some of our courses. If you are interested in receiving credits, please contact Katie Johnson, OASBO's Deputy Executive DIrector, prior to your attendance at an event.

LPDC Committee
Any licensed individuals working in other professions or any unemployed or retired treasurers who need to complete yearly LPDC requirements to maintain licensure are eligible to participate in OASBO’s program. The OASBO LPDC can ONLY serve individuals with a current, valid Ohio treasurer or business manager license.
