The latest edition of County Leader is out! Click here for a look at ways COVID-19 is impacting counties.


The CCAO policy team is excited to announce eight regional roundtables meetings will be held this fall to bring together commissioners from across the state. CCAO will provide a brief state budget overview and the remainder of the event will be a roundtable discussion among commissioners about the successes and opportunities throughout their counties going forward. The policy team also plans to invite representatives from Ohio’s statewide executive officials and OSU Extension to provide brief updates to each roundtable group.

The events will begin at 11 am and end around 1:30 pm, unless otherwise noted, and lunch will be served. You are welcome to attend any of the events listed below. Please RSVP to Nedra Benson at or 614-221-5627.

We want to extend a special thank you to the counties who volunteered to host and we look forward to seeing you this fall!
