I want to extend a HUGE congratulations to Ohio BPA! Last year I challenged Ohio Advisors and members to achieve a year of service through the BPA Cares program and Torch Awards. Here is how we did:

  • BPA Cares – Ohio moved from 12th place to 2nd place!
  • Torch Awards – Ohio remained 1st but IMPROVED participation by 425 members!
  • Quality Chapters – Ohio went from ZERO to 5
  • Chapter Activities Award of Excellence – Ohio went from 2 to 7!

New Challenge – Ohio lost the National Professional Cup because we were low on Quality Chapters. So, I urge all of you to set a goal to maintain the excellence you achieved last year and strive for the Quality Chapter designation. Here are the forms to plan your chapter’s activities for the year. Let’s  show everyone that Ohio is the State to beat!
