The SERO Executive Board has determined that in the best interests of our members and attendees the May 12, 2020 Annual Meeting will be canceled. It was an extremely difficult decision but weighing the health and safety of members and others involved with this meeting was the first priority. We are currently discussing how to hold the election and will announce that soon. Any registrations for the meeting received in our office will be returned to the member. We do hope you plan to attend our May 11, 2021 Annual Meeting. In the meantime, SERO asks everyone to follow the health and safety tips as well as the restrictions that may be in place for your own area. If we all work together we can bring this issue to a quicker resolve. Please contact our office at 614-431-0387 with any questions.

Due to the growing impact of COVID-19, known as the coronavirus, in the Ohio area, SERO is following the Governor’s recommended public health best practices and will be working remotely . SERO staff will not be present at our office. However, our regular hours to respond to voicemails/emails will remain 9 AM to 4 PM from Monday to Friday. We are in the process of enabling all of our staff members with the ability to work remotely until this health crisis has passed. As we make these preparations, members may experience a short delay in response times to phone calls and emails as we will be checking our answering system and emails regularly. All chapter meetings are canceled until further notice in order to keep our members safe . As we continue to sort through the logistics of this change, we ask for your understanding and patience. The SERO staff will do everything we can to continue providing exceptional service to our members. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact us at or leave us a message at 614-431-0387
