            Applications for membership to join the Ohio Municipal Attorneys Association (OMAA) for the year 2018 are ready. Over the years municipal lawyers have become used to the OMAA’s holding seminars packed with topics of current value to municipal lawyers. We intend to continue CLE seminars with a standard of excellence. The OMAA is moving to a more

electronic delivery of service, along with these new services: a listserv, an OMAA webpage, USB delivery of seminar materials, webinars, white papers, blog, model legislation, sample ordinances and resolutions, new municipal attorney seminars, and more.

We need to have an active membership to support the funding of our association. We are at the beginning of a membership drive. Our goal is 250 members for 2018. This means that we will need to retain our current members and enlist 50 new members. We need your help by having your city or village renew its membership, if you are already a member, or by becoming a member of the OMAA if your city or village is not presently a member.

The 2018 annual membership dues are as follows: $975 for cities with a population over 60,000, $775 for cities 60,000 or under, $600 for villages over 2500, $300 for villages of 2500 or under. Those law firms that choose to pay the dues from firms or personal funds will be charged $775. Individual associate membership is available for village solicitors of villages of 500 or fewer and sole practitioners not affiliated with a municipality, but who practice local government law. The fee for this individual associate membership is $100. Associate members will not have access to the Members Only section of the webpage, but will receive access to both the civil and prosecutor listserv(s), webinars, general counsel notes, announcements, newsletters, and information on seminars.

            Membership includes a newsletter to be sent to members not less than nine times per year, access to both the civil and prosecutor listservs, the right to register for webinars, white papers, sample ordinances and resolutions, notice of upcoming events, the blog, surveys, job postings, General Counsel Notes, and Member Spotlights.

            When requested by the OMAA to provide assistance in its amicus briefs program, we will work with the OML. I am available to talk with municipal lawyers as needed.

            Act now. Join or renew your municipalities’ membership to the OMAA.
