OCA Events

In addition to OCA's busy year-round schedule of chapter level meetings, committee meetings and training programs, there are three signature events that draw members from around the state:

OCA Annual Conventions

OCA's version of a serious winter thaw, the Annual Convention draws members to high-profile destinations around the world. Members recharge with just the right blend of industry-relevant speakers and education programs, rich networking and relationship building opportunities, local history, entertainment and...FUN!

In 2020, the group relaxed on the island of Maui. In 2022, it was Aruba. In 2023 it's Barcelona, Spain!

At the edge of the Caribbean Sea, where the white sand meets land, The Ritz-Carlton, Aruba offered an escape from routine and an opportunity to truly relax. The five-star resort was designed so that guests can easily explore the island or never leave the hotel grounds. Amenities are both comforting and indulgent, and all reflect the spirit, richness and charm of Aruba.

This yearly event is a collaborative effort between OCA and ODOT.  Attendees learn about the critical topics in the industry and find rich opportunities to network with more than 500 fellow industry professionals.
