Apr 8, 2020 | News

The Ohio Economic Development Association is committed to helping its members during this challenging time.  OEDA wants to ensure members have access to the association’s services and programs during the COVID-19 crisis.  As such, the Board of Directors adopted a resolution that extends the membership grace period to May 30 to ensure members do not lose access to important information, education and training, legislative and policy updates, special members-only programs and  pricing, and complimentary webinars.

Normally, there is a 90-day grace period, beginning on January 1 of each new year, in which members can continue to receive their full slate of member benefits and services.  If a member does not renew by March 31 of each year, the end of the renewal grace period, membership benefits are suspended. The board’s action ensures the members continue to receive their membership benefits and services during this crisis. Members can still renew their membership during this extended grace period.  Log-in to your profile and select “Renew Your Membership.”
