Public Agency Advocacy


Public agencies (including ODOT) - along with the associated red-tape - represent the majority of highway/heavy work in Ohio.

OCA advocates for member firms as a voice and link to public agencies throughout the state.

Thanks to collaborative relationships forged over decades, OCA, on behalf of its members, and ODOT partner in policy and program development, and foster issue resolution.

Because partnering is fundamental to OCA's mission, the association commits significant resources to supportive activities that directly benefit members, like:

Conaway Conference

The Conaway Conference is held in late February/early March of each year, and provides a forum for ODOT representatives and OCA members to:

Share Industry Innovations & Best Practices
Review the Previous Construction Season
