During the four days of the conference, the students and administrative staff members participated in educational sessions, a Centennial Bash and attended a ceremony that included a video presentation highlighting the historical milestones of the profession. Also attending the conference were Harriet Bynum, OTA program director for Kent-East Liverpool, and Nina Sullivan, academic field work coordinator on the East Liverpool Campus.
