Annual Conference

2018 OWO Working Conference

Each year OWO holds a spring conference to celebrate our beautiful state and our outstanding membership, to allow for networking, sharing ideas and projects, and to build upon our work with guest speakers and other educational opportunities.

The conferences are held at various locations around the Buckeye State, providing opportunities for our members to fish, hike, kayak, and enjoy the attractions of the host county.

On the last evening of each annual conference, we hold a banquet and awards ceremony where we recognize our members for their contributions in various categories of craft excellence and outreach. We also award student scholarships at that time.
