The OAEA is pleased to announce the receipt of a grant award from the Ohio Arts Council in the amount of $1322.  This critical funding is being used to support strategic planning currently in process.  The OAEA Strategic Planning Team comprised of the Executive Committee and representatives from the Board of Directors met August 4 for a day-long retreat to launch the planning process. The goal of this project is to strengthen our organization and plan for the future. Consultant Julie Graber of "Brains for Business" is assisting us with this effort and a report will be unveiled at the 2015 OAEA Professional Development Conference in Dayton.  The OAEA greatly appreciates the support of the Ohio Arts Council who helped fund this project with state tax dollars to encourage economic growth, educational excellence and cultural enrichment for all Ohioans.


 OAEA ARTline earns National Recognition

The OAEA ARTline has been selected by a jury of peers to receive the 2015 NAEA Newsletter Award Honorable Mention.

Congratulations are in order for Meghan Dillon, our dedicated and diligent Editor who has maintained order and artistry in our ARTline since Vol. 37, issue 1, winter 2012.

The award will be presented during the 2016 NAEA National Convention in Chicago, during the Delegates Assembly, which will be held
Wednesday, March 16, 2016.

Ohio first earned NAEA newsletter recognition in 1995 through 1997 under Editor Amy Fell, who established a record through 1997. Pandy Reiser’s Editorship of the ARTline continued to earn NAEA recognition in 1998 and 2000-2001. Laura (Ursem) Tawil added 2002 to the record.

Congratulations to Meghan for continuing our legacy of a quality newsletter for our members and keeping Ohio on the “front page” of our national professional organization stage.
