I hope this finds everyone well. Due to the cancellation of the convention we will be holding our general membership meeting virtually using the OSTA Zoom account. Since our duty is to provide an annual meeting for OSTA members, you will need to send a request to attend the meeting, and after confirming active membership (through 9/30/20) on the roster, you will be e-mailed the link with the login for online attendance and phone number for call in attendance. Send your meeting attendance request to [email protected] with your full name, address and phone number.

We are delaying the start of our online fund raising auction until 9/12/20, the same day as our virtual meeting. The auction will end the evening of 9/25/20. we have some nice items lined up for the auction, and need a little more time to get everything ready for presentation to everyone, watch for another e-news with auction information, and also the OSTA website and Facebook page.
