OCC Meeting, Nov. 15th: Planning for 2023 and Beyond (All Welcome)

Dear OCC Members,

With the successful OCC Centennial meeting behind us, the Ohio Classical Conference has already begun to think about the next year. Building on the centennial meeting that brought faculty and students from across the state together, we will be holding our next planning meeting to prepare for the 2023 meeting and beyond. Please join us on Zoom on Tuesday 15 November 2022 at 7:00 p.m. The meeting will last one hour and, in addition to dealing with some administrative issues like selection of officers and revisiting the constitution, we plan to think of issues such as developing Greek, Latin, and Classical Humanities teachers within the state; bringing Classics students together through campus Classics clubs and Eta Sigma Phi; ways to bring the latest Classics scholarship to all interested parties in the state; how we might display the Hildesheim vase; and more. All are welcome, even if you have not recently participated in the OCC.

Please note that advanced registration is required by following the Zoom link at the end of the message.
