*Please note that at the April 2022 OMA Board of Trustees (BOT) Meeting, the BOT voted to change the OMA annual conference cadence beginning at the April 2024 meeting.  This shift towards acknowledging the Spring Conference as OMA’s new “Annual” Conference begins in the spring of 2024.  As such, OMA’s BOT tenure cycles for this term will be altered to support this change.  After the Fall 2022 BOT swearing in ceremony, the new cadence of BOT swearing in will occur in the spring beginning at the April 2024 Annual Spring Conference, thereby extending current, as well as future BOT member terms, for the current nomination and election cycle.
