2019 OCCMA Summer Conference

2019 OCCMA Summer Conference
The 2019 OCCMA Summer Conference will be held from July 9 through July 12, 2019 at the Best Western Plus Agate Beach Inn, in Newport, Oregon.

The OCCMA Professional Development Committee has planned a diverse series of educational sessions ranging from financial forecasting, actively dealing with personnel issues, social media, finding balance between staff and council goals, and more. The Conference begins on Tuesday afternoon with a trade show reception that evening.  

There will be activities for families, including a beachside campfire with s’mores. New this year will be a fun family activity – The Amazing Newport Race! Fashioned after the television series, families will be given a list of interesting and unique Newport areas, and asked to provide a photo of themselves at that spot. The winner of the Amazing Newport Race will be announced on Thursday evening at the President’s reception and dinner, held at the Oregon Coast Aquarium.

The City of Newport is very pleased to host OCCMA for the 2019 Summer Conference.  We encourage you to bring your families and enjoy the great conference and summer fun at the beach!
