This year’s President’s Tour has seen a change from previous years. We pivoted from in person to online, making OMA history and expanded the outreach into two phases: Phase 1: OMA Leadership Tour focusing on Leader-to-Leader engagement, and Phase 2: More like the traditional OMA President’s Tour focusing on Leader-to-Member engagement. We renewed the focus to include greater access to OMA Leadership – CEO and Board Chair — and extended the timeline from September to January allowing for evolving contemporary topic updates.
