    If you are willing to dedicate a little time at the OCA Booth during AOCC (All Ohio Counselors Conference), here is a link to sign up.  No discount, no free lunch,m just the appreciation of your OCA and Bob the Exec.

    Sign up early to get the slot you want or when you are best available.  Not tough work - answer questions, provide directions, sign up or renew memberships, sell shirts and swag, and sell raffle tickets for the PAC Basket Raffle.  Lots of meet and greet, smiles, and easy conversation.

    Thanks to all for considering this, it means a lot to have others there to help!
