Welcome to CPO 

News & Announcements


Welcome North Region Program Directors 

Lisa Skalecki and Dave Spalding have answered the call for help and are excited to begin working together to revitalize our North region. Both Lisa and Dave have served in many capacities with CPO in years past and they are just what we need to help get the engine fired up and running strong in Cleveland and the surrounding areas. More to come from Lisa and Dave once they have had a chance to get started.



2017 Elections Committee: Elections for 2017 CPO council positions believe it or not are just around the corner. We need a few volunteers to form the elections committee. The committee chair will be chosen by the committee. To participate in the committee, you need to be an active member who is not going to run for an elected position in 2017. Please contact me at president@cpohio.org by July 15 if you would like to help in this critical function for our organization. 

By-Laws Review Committee: It has been 6 years since we last reviewed our organization's by-laws. Part of running a solid non-profit organization is periodically reviewing our governing documents to keep the organization current and relevant for our target membership. Please consider stepping forward to help lead this process and be a vital part of shaping CPO in the years to come. Our target is to conduct the process during the second half of 2016 in order to present the updated by-laws to the membership for open review and comment in 1st quarter 2017. The plan is to hold the vote to accept the updated by-laws in our 2017 Spring Summit. Please contact me at president@cpohio.org by August 1 if you are interested in participating in this committee. The committee chair will be chosen by the committee members.
