Attention all Ohio IMA members, there is pending legislation in the State of Ohio, the “Reform Occupational Licensing Act,” which would enable the state to set up its own voluntary certification programs, in direct competition with those programs offered by professional associations like IMA. ASAE (American Society of Association Executives) covered the story last week (see article). The bill (S.B. 255) passed the Ohio State Senate in June and was introduced in the State House in July; to date, it has yet to be referred to a committee. We strongly encourage you to also voice your concerns to your local State House representative.
