ANNUAL CONFERENCE & Business Meeting

OATFACS: Knowledge You Can’t Teach Without!

August 3-4, 2020

OATFACS has always focused on serving the best interests of all FCS teachers in meeting their needs for professional development.

So, it is with sincere regret we announce the cancellation of our annual meeting and conference scheduled for August 3-4, 2020 at the Marriott Columbus Northwest.

With the uncertainty related to Covid-19 and the unfortunate budget cuts to Ohio education, we recognize both the risk and difficulty in gathering everyone together at this time. However, this does not mean we have abandoned our purpose in providing quality professional development this year.

OATFACS Board members remain committed to helping all FCS teachers provide high quality teaching and learning and are in the process of developing plans for online programming to fill the void created with this cancelation.

Please continue to check back to this website and, also, in your school email for future announcements regarding these professional development options.

We wish everyone good health, a smooth ending to the current school year, a summer of rest and rejuvenation!


Please mark your calendar as we hope to see everyone at
