TransOhio as a 501 C 3 non profit organization endeavors to keep the costs of attendance to the Symposium at a minimum and to provide scholarships to those in need as well as to provide free attendance to our youth in the community as well. Registration fees therefore does not began to cover the costs of putting on the Symposium and we rely upon sponsorships from individuals, business and organizations to make this possible. The Sponsorship packet information is below.
Eventually, more details on speakers and schedules will be available here as announced and upon finalization of the schedules in March.
We look forward to seeing everyone at this year’s symposium as we celebrate our ten years together at the 2018 TransOhio Symposium!
