Join your fellow postmanagers and managers at our 2023 Chapter Convention

Experience Hocking Hills!

Ohio UPMA wants to invite you to join us at Ohio State Convention, June 1 – 4, 2023. This year it will be held at the Newly built Hocking Hills State Park Lodge near Logan and Nelsonville, southeast of Columbus Ohio. It has been quite some time since we have had a Convention in this area of the State and we want you to take this opportunity to enjoy some beautiful scenery in Hocking Hills.

So, what can you expect this year when you go to Convention? We will kick it off Thursday June 1, with a Presidents’ Welcome Reception from 7:00 – 9:00 pm with fun entertainment and appetizers followed by evening activities and games in our Hospitality Suite.

Friday, Saturday, and Sunday morning from 8:00 am -12:00 pm, will be a Business Meeting that includes in-person presentations from our National Executive Board. Area District Managers and local Postmasters are invited to discuss new information affecting our Ohio members. Training scheduled will include USPS news and data not covered in Postal trainings. Many awards, achievements, gifts and scholarships are given.

After Business Meeting each day, we have several fun events and outings planned throughout the weekend. What sets Hocking Hills apart are the number of breathtaking dramatic rock formations, caves, deep gorges, waterfalls, and towering cliffs. Not surprisingly, the seclusion and natural beauty make Hocking Hills one of the state’s principal tourist destinations, especially during the warmer months. The Ohio department of Natural Resources offer special events and nature programs year round. Outdoor activities abound, such as hiking tours (some handicap accessible), rock climbing, canoeing, rafting and kayaking, fishing, but the area’s other offerings include everything from art districts, shopping, southern dining and breweries.

We are providing free meals with your registration. Your member registration deposit for meals will be refunded to you at end of Convention and attending all business sessions. We are offering this year, a $200 stipend per room to any UPMA member attending all business sessions of Convention.

Also, for our First Time attending UPMA members, we will reimburse the Basic room accommodations at the Hocking Hills Lodge for up to 3 nights beginning June 1 2023, for attending all business sessions of the Convention. (the first time member will not be eligible for $200 stipend in addition to paid Hotel accommodations) This will be the best opportunity for first time members to enjoy the benefits available to you!
