Important Rescheduling Information

  • If chapter paid by check: Rooms will “roll over” to September automatically. If they are unable to attend in September and would like a refund, they must contact the hotel directly and request a refund.
  • If the chapter paid by credit card (which have not been charged): Contact the hotel and request the hotel move their “hold” to the September date as legally, OCSEA can’t make that request on the member’s behalf due to credit card laws.
  • If the chapter would like their registration refund: Submit in writing via email, fax or letter to the attention of Theresa Smith and their check will be mailed back to them.
  • Have questions? Contact Angela Harrington.


Room reservations must be made directly by calling The Summit A Dolce Hotel at 866-898-3567. Mention "Ohio Civil Service Employees Association" for the group rate. The hotel's booking deadline for the "OCSEA" rate is February 28. Room reservations will not be guaranteed after the booking cutoff date.

The "OCSEA" rate for sleeping rooms (King/Queen) is $134.00 plus tax per night (this is a $5 increase per night as a result of the rescheduling).

If your chapter is paying by check, the check MUST be mailed to the hotel two weeks prior to the conference as the hotel will not accept checks the day of arrival.
