Welcome to EOPO
The phrase collective forward momentum implies you have come from somewhere and are heading toward something else and acknowledges you have not traveled the path alone. It also implies that there is a connection between those two points. We do not get to the future without having gone through the past and taken a stop in the present. There is a direction and a path for the activity. Collective forward momentum is a journey which can span a life time of an individual or even an organization.
Our pasts are filled with stories about our rich histories and dreams for the future. Just like EOPO, we all began somewhere. The present is filled with ups and downs, and we have learned to celebrate together and lean on each other for support and encouragement. Within the present, we have hope for the future. Moving forward into the future requires vision and it holds great opportunities for us to grow and become the EOPO of our mission statement:
Educational Office Professionals of Ohio is dedicated to promoting professionalism through developing skills, enhancing knowledge, and encouraging growth.
NOTE: The theme for the Educational Office Professionals of Ohio is chosen by our President. The complete speech given at the installation ceremony on June 21, 2014, is available here in PDF.
