The Ohio Township Association has more than 5,000 active members, made up of trustees and fiscal officers from Ohio’s 1,308 townships, and more than 4,000 associate members.  The OTA is comprised of 87 county township associations, through which membership is conducted.  There are two types of membership in the OTA:



Active membership is available only to elected township officials.  Dues are $40 per year and members receive the newsletter, magazine and discounts to OTA conferences.  Members also receive discounts to partner programs such as the Ohio Township Association Risk Management Authority (OTARMA), the Public Employee Benefits Association (PEBA) and Bureau of Workers’ Compensation discounts through CareWorksComp and CareWorks.



Associate membership is available to any person or company interested in township government.  Townships are encouraged to register all township employees, including zoning inspectors, administrators, cemetery superintendents and police and fire chiefs, as associate members.  County officials, such as prosecutors, and vendors are also common associate members.  OTA associate dues are $10 per year and members receive the Ohio Township News and are eligible to attend OTA conferences and seminars at a discounted rate.


*The OTA Board of Directors recently voted to raise membership dues beginning with the 2016-2017 membership year.  Active members will be $40 per year, and an associate membership will cost $10 annually.  


If you would like to become a member, contact your county membership coordinator.
