EMAO Winter Conference and Vendor Show

Salt Fork Lodge and Conference Center
December 8th and 9th

Due to the popularity of the EMAO Winter Conference, we had to move to a bigger venue to accommodate all our members.  We hope that you will plan on joining us at Salt Fork Lodge and Conference Center, which is another one of Ohio’s State Parks located in Lore City, outside of Cambridge, Ohio.

Not only has our venue expanded, but we are excited to be able to get back together with our EMAO Vendors.  This will be the first EMAO Conference and Vendor Shows since 2019 and we are certain that this will be one of the best!

Although the venue is larger, we are still planning on selling out of rooms, so we want to encourage everyone to register as soon as possible!

If you would like to submit a proposal for a presentation at the Winter Conference, proposals will be accepted through June 17, 2022. You can find the application for proposals here.
