Welcome to the OCITA Site


The Ohio County/City Information Technology Association offers a comprehensive learning partnership that benefits all group members. The OCITA group creates a pool of trained and experienced individuals ready to share ideas. It provides the opportunity to develop working relationships among all members.

Why Should You Join OCITA?

OCITA is tremendous way to network with your peers. You can ask questions, share ideas, and learn about technologies that will help you do your job. 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!

We also play a very proactive role in determining the content of the Ohio Digital Government Summit; an annual IT specifically for public sector IT employees that is hosted in Columbus.
