Our membership is eager to help other members solve technology and business problems. The cost is very low, and the time commitment is open to whatever you want it to be. We meet quarterly, and we generally take a field trip annually.

Additionally, you are given free admission to the CIO Summit in Cleveland every year. This is a $995 value!

The Ohio County/City Information Technology Association’s Annual Spring Event is our conference during which top IT leaders from around Ohio join together for one day of exciting presentations from notable speakers, demonstrations from industry-leading vendors, and the chance to welcome the newest OCITA members. This year’s Spring Event morning session will focus on big data creation, storage challenges, best practices for government and its impact in the public sector. The afternoon session will focus on recovering the big data, challenges and best practices utilized for government. Additional panel discussions throughout the day will allow for an open forum for all to share experiences with peers from various counties and municipalities. Our website is OCITA.ORG.

This years’ Spring Event will be held on Thursday, May 19th and venue at the Wright Patterson Air Force Base in Dayton, Ohio from 9:00am – 2:00pm. Beginning at 2:00pm there will be an optional tour to the Environmental Health Effects Research Directorate and Aeromedical Research Directorate, 2.5 hours estimate which includes walking/travel time. Both members and non-members are encouraged to join us. There will be an opportunity to become an OCITA member during the conference.

You will need to pre-register at ocitasignups@gmail.com by April 15th. OCITA will need to provide the WP-AFB Public Affairs Officer/Security with a list of all the pre-registered attendees containing the following required information. If not on the list - you will be denied access to the WP-AFB grounds.

- Attendee name including your current email address
- Attendee active driver license or state id and number
- Attendee must be a US citizen (so we can keep the meeting date – green cards take considerably longer to screen)
