OCTM invites you to participate in the 69th Annual Conference at the beautiful Kalahari Resort and Convention Center in Sandusky on October 23-25, 2019!  See our downloadable flier here.


***Register NOW for the conference!  Click here to begin.  Early registration rates are valid through October 1, 2019.  Pay online with a credit card or by check or purchase order.  You can also use this form to register for the awards luncheon only.

For questions about paying by check or purchase order, contact Mark Jaffee (Conference Coordinator) at mark.jaffee@ohioctm.org .  Note that if a school is sending a purchase order, registrants should register online at the link above (you will not need the P.O. number to register) and choose the "Invoice me" option in the payment screen.  The purchase order can be sent via e-mail (above) or regular mail to Mark Jaffee, whose mailing address is provided when the registration is done.

If you need to amend or cancel your registration (including awards luncheon reservations), please contact Mark Jaffee at the e-mail above. 


Session proposals are closed.  The program committee is working to prepare an excellent slate of sessions for us!  For questions about the conference program, contact Program Chairs Deb Gallagher at dgallag@bgsu.edu or Thomas Roberts at otrober@bgsu.edu .


Hotel reservations

You can reserve your room at Kalahari NOW by visiting this link provided by Kalahari.  When you begin the process, you will be asked to select from a dropdown menu -- choose "Attendee" (there is no access code).  If you have any technical difficulties with the reservation process, please contact Nicole at nhable@kalahariresorts.com

Please be aware that you should not be charged a "resort fee", which is part of the regular rate at the hotel; if you happen to see this on your confirmation, we recommend that you contact Kalahari to ensure that it is waived.

Other notes about room reservations at Kalahari:

  • The OCTM room rate is $119 per night plus tax, which is substantially lower than the regular rate of $180 (or higher) plus tax.  This includes access to the water park for anyone staying in your room.
  • Parking is free and on-site at Kalahari, in outdoor lots that are easily accessible from the main building.  The conference and hotel facilities, including various options for dining, shopping, and entertainment, are all under one roof.
  • A deposit of your first night's stay plus tax will be charged to your credit card upon making your reservation.
  • If you need to cancel up to 72 hours before checking in, you will receive your full deposit back, minus a $25 fee.

Please contact Mark Jaffee (Annual Conference Coordinator and Exhibits Chair) at mark.jaffee@ohioctm.org with questions if you are a vendor.  Download the vendor information sheets here.  You can register online now at this link.
