Ohio UPMA held a Region 4 meeting, which included offices in the 440/441/442/443/ 444/445/446 zips. The meeting was held 10/24/2019, at the Spaghetti Warehouse in
Guest speakers were the NOPC District Manager, Sharon Young, and District Finance Manager, Donna Berry. We were very fortunate to have (A) Plant Manager Cleveland, Dexter Florence, and Senior POOM, Dave Curry in attendance also. They each discussed many issues such as, Training, Integrity, Budget, Safety, Plant operations, and PEAK plan. They all took all questions from the floor. Ohio UPMA really appreciates all of them giving us their time.
Attendance was low, but is increasing. We appreciate those of you that did come. It was a great atmosphere, fantastic dinner, and good networking.
The Treasurers report was read. We then discussed a small portion of the legislative front. Information was shared about the Legislative Summit, State Convention, and National Convention. A briefing was given on the progress with the 2021 National Convention, at Kalahari, in Sandusky. We were fortunate to have some new people present who seemed very interested in our agenda.
At the end of the meeting, many stayed and spoke with each other, Betty, and Mari Beth, in regards to events. It was a great meeting. We are looking forward to the next meeting, at a different location in January/February.
