2021 Virtual OBS Conference

March 6, 2021

Due to COVID-19 this year, we are trying something different for our OBS Annual Conference. There will not be an in-person conference at Ashland. We are going to have 4 main PowerPoint talks that will be on the website by March and will be keeping with the theme: Back to the Basics. This year’s wonderful logo was created by Anna Rose.
