OBA Day at the Capitol

Tuesday, March 23, 2021

The good news is there will be an OBA Day at the Capitol, so mark your calendars for Tuesday, March 23. The bad news is … of course … this will be a virtual event, so we will not actually be going to the Capitol. With that said, we are hoping to take a different tact on the presentation, so stay tuned for further details.
