Monthly meetings are held in Cincinnati, Columbus, and Cleveland, Ohio. ORA members and visiting search firm owners, managers and recruiters who want to learn more about ORA are all invited to attend. Please see our Events page for a listing of our upcoming meetings.
New Name, Same Mission!
At our annual planning meeting in December, improved branding and marketing for the Ohio Association of Executive Search Professionals was a top priority for the Board and Leadership team who attended. In the course of talking about logos and web site, one member raised the question,"What about our name? If we are looking at rebranding, does our name reflect who we are as an association?"
As a result, a Branding Committee consisting of Bruce Bille, Dan Funke and Catherine Reynolds organized to consider the possibilities. In February, the committee recommended and the Board approved that we change our name to the "Ohio Recruiters Association."
- It more clearly states who we are as a group
- Better reflects our existing membership
- Casts a wider net and may draw more members from firms who may have disqualified themselves if they do not do "executive recruiting"
- Plus, when abbreviated, ORA has fewer vowels to remember!
In other branding news, our new logo was developed in March. Our web site will move to OhioRecruiters.org once the new web design is complete, hopefully early this summer. We appreciate your feedback and suggestions as we next work revamp the web site.
Our name has changed, but our mission remains the same: to provide networking, best practices and educational opportunities for our members.
