“We expect to have an engaging dialogue on a variety of topics, and we are excited to have business and community leaders gather to network and gain new insight into policies affecting the region. We look forward to hearing the panelists and guest speakers discuss issues important to Miami Valley residents,” said Jennifer Flatter, CEO of Impact Ohio.

The full agenda has yet to be announced, but attendees can expect to hear first-hand from government leaders, political analysts, pundits and policy experts on issues that affect their community. There will be networking opportunities with elected officials, business and community leaders.

There is an early bird rate of $60 a ticket until Sept. 12. After the deadline, registration will be $80. Tickets are available at

The first Impact Ohio conference was launched in 1984 with the first Post Election Conference in Columbus. Interest has grown over the last 35 years, according to Impact Ohio, which led the event to expand in 2017 with regional conferences in cities such as Dayton, Toledo and Akron.

“As Impact Ohio has grown over the years, we continue to receive positive feedback from attendees who feel our conferences are a great opportunity to network and hear first-hand from experts in various fields. Because of this enthusiasm, we are working to take our events all across the state to share Impact Ohio with other communities,” Flatter said.
