2019 Conference Recap
The 2019 Ohio Women Veterans Conference was held Saturday, August 10 at the Ohio Union with 460 registrants. Lt. Gov. Jon Husted, Ohio Department of Veterans Services Director Deborah Ashenhurst and Rear Admiral (ret.) June Ryan addressed the audience during the ceremonies and luncheon. In addition to 12 breakout sessions, the conference featured two expo areas, an art and women military uniform exhibit, County Veteran Services Officers and the HER2 Room for Health, Empowerment, Restoration and Relaxation. We thank the attendees, speakers, exhibitors, volunteers … and especially the Ohio Women Veterans Advisory Committee.
"From World War II to today, there is a different perspective that we come across in this group of women veterans. We embrace the sisterhood among women veterans and we lift each other up."
- Claudia Foss, Vice Chair of the Ohio Women Veterans Advisory Committee
