    President Adrianne Johnson was awarded the National Branch Advocacy Award at the ACA Annual Meeting in New Orleans.  This award is presented to the State or Branch Chapter that is seen as exemplary in their motivated efforts to protect clients from harm, to shape licensure language, and promote ethical clinical practice in their state.  The OCA was also awarded this honor in 2016, 2013 and 2011. 

    Special thanks go out to the Government Relations Committee chaired by Sean Gorby.

    Keep up the good work Ohio!
