A Word about our Structure
OVConnect is its own free-standing organization incorporated in the state of West Virginia (although, again, we are very much an organization for Ohio and Pennsylvania).
We are a member organization of Generation West Virginia, an umbrella group of professional organizations across West Virginia including others that are associated with more than just WV.
We are funded solely by membership dues and events we offer that are above the break-even point. We are also fortunate to have received several grants to support our efforts here in the Ohio Valley.
We are run by a volunteer Board of Directors, consisting of fourteen local professionals. Director openings are voted on by our membership base each year, with each Director receiving a three-year term.
