Base fee:

You are invited to attend the OSHA 2017 Annual Conference this year in Salem. As you will see from the brochure, we not only feature national speakers on Friday, but also a number of individuals from around the state will give presentations or posters both Friday and Saturday. Many thanks go to the practicing clinicians and students who are offering their time and energy in presenting this year.

With our theme, Advocacy in Action, we have several special changes to our usual lineup.  Here are some highlights:

  • Opening Session:  Friday, 8:00-9:00.  The conference will open with a plenary session featuring Bob Joondeph, Executive Director of Disability Rights Oregon.  He’ll kick off the conference events with a talk about the current state of affairs and future directions for disability rights.  This session will provide attendees one hour of continuing education.
  • Advocacy break-out Sessions:  Friday lunch, 11:45-1:15.  Attendees will have the opportunity to join break-out groups dedicated to discussion of specific advocacy topics relevant to our membership.  Each group will be assigned facilitators to keep the discussions moving, and our hope is that each group emerges with action items to continue working on key issues. 
  • Documentary Screening and Director Q&A:  Friday evening.  Cheryl Green, co-director, will be joining us for a screening of her documentary, “Who Am I To Stop It,” Friday evening at 7:00.  This illuminating documentary about three Portland based artists with brain injuries has received wide acclaim and we’re thrilled to have it featured at the conference.  The public is welcome to join us so spread the word!
  • Awards and Business Meeting:  Saturday lunch.  This is changed from our usual Friday time due to the inclusion of the break-out sessions that day.

We have an accomplished group of invited speakers on Friday, and a number of innovative topics being presented on Saturday by people from around the state.  New this year – we will have an SLPA track so we can better meet the continuing education needs of our colleagues.  The full conference program is available to view here.
