OVSPS PresidentOVSPS 67th Meeting May 31st - June 2nd 2024 at the Renaissance Pittsburgh Hotel in Pittsburgh, PA.

Our 2024 annual meeting is scheduled on Friday, Saturday (1/2 day) and Sunday (1/2 day), May 31st through June 2nd at the Renaissance Pittsburgh Hotel in Pittsburgh, PA. The Awards Dinner will be at the Carnegie Museum of Art Music Hall Foyer on Saturday, June 1st. Please mark your calendars and advise your administrative staff so they are aware of your schedule. Check our website for updates as we approach the end of this year.

I believe most of our members are aware that the Pandemic caused significant delays to many events, e.g., weddings, corporate meetings, etc., which caused difficulty for the Society to obtain the meeting space we require. In fact, we are currently experiencing the same difficulty for the 2025 meeting. This is the reason we decided to schedule half-day sessions on both Saturday and Sunday for the 2024 meeting.

This will be an iconic meeting as we will have wounded veterans as special guests along with an outstanding lineup of speakers. Please plan on joining us in Pittsburgh.
