AAAA Region V Hosts 16th Annual State of the State Conference

The American Association for Affirmative Action's Region V (Minnesota, Wisconsin, Michigan, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois) is hosting its 16th Annual "State of the State" conference. The conference will be held on March 22, 2012 at Rhodes State College in Lima, Ohio. The theme is "Creating an Inclusive Environment for Many Forces." AAAA Executive Director Shirley J. Wilcher will be a luncheon speaker.

The mission of the conference is:

To provide Ohio’s residents with an annual high quality, affordable conference in which they are able to share and learn how Ohioans from public, private, non-profit, educational and corporate sectors are seeking to make their organizations and communities more inclusive and representative. By examining how our state is preparing for the dramatic demographic changes predicted for the decades ahead, it is our hope and belief that our conference will contribute positively to preparing Ohio’s institutions to effectively meet the challenges and opportunities presented by these changes.
