Seminar Policies

Registration Policy
All seminar/event registrations must be completed online. If you do not have access to the internet or have technical difficulties using the online system, forms will be accepted via mail at education@oasbo-ohio.org, or fax and must be accompanied by a purchase order or check. OASBO also accepts major credit cards (Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover). Please note that membership dues must be paid to qualify for member pricing.

OASBO does not consider receipt of a district check or purchase order without a registration form a complete registration.

Online registration requires that you have a profile/account set up on our website. (You do not need to be a member to have a user account/profile). If you have problems logging in or creating a profile, please contact our office at 614.431.9116. Do not create a second account.


Invoices
Upon registering for a seminar, you will receive two emails: one email containing your invoice, and one registration confirmation email with event details. The invoice email will come from acctg@oasbo-ohio.org and has a subject line that says “OASBO Invoice.” If you do not receive this email, please contact the OASBO office at 614.431.9116 so we can issue you an invoice. Invoices should paid in full prior to attendance at an OASBO seminar.

Confirmation Emails
You will receive a registration confirmation email with the subject line “{Event Name} Registration Confirmation." This email contains the event date, name, and location. If you do not receive a confirmation email, you are not registered.


Walk-In Policy
To ensure a seat at an OASBO seminar, you must register online in advance. Our seminars often fill to capacity, but we do maintain waitlists. If there are seats available at a seminar, we will accept walk-ins only after all registered and waitlisted individuals have been seated. In order to attend the seminar, you must bring payment - via a personal or district check, major credit card, or purchase order number - with you.

Seminar Agendas and Locations
Seminar agendas are posted on our website as soon as they become available. Links to seminar locations and maps are also available on the Calendar of Events page.


Inclement Weather Policy
Seminars are scheduled explicitly as “rain or shine,” which means we will hold the event regardless of weather conditions. However, in the event of severe inclement weather, the Sheriff of a county may declare a snow or flood emergency and temporarily close state, county, and township roads within their jurisdiction. show more

OASBO will cancel an event when the county in which the event resides has declared an emergency level of two or three. OASBO will make every attempt to contact registrants in the event of cancellation. In the event OASBO cancels the event, the association will refund your fee in full.
