The Ohio DD Council meets at least four times per year. All meetings are subject to the provisions of ORC 121.22, commonly known as Ohio's open meeting or Sunshine Law. However, committee starting times may change to accommodate the needs of speakers. We welcome and encourage visitors to come join us.
