OPEG is a completely volunteer-led organization. Board and regular members serve OPEG in various ways:

We appreciate all our volunteers for their contribution of time and other resources. Service committees and other activities regularly need assistance.

Each year OPEG presents awards to an Ohio evaluator who has substantially contributed to the field and an OPEG member who has provided outstanding service to the organization. See our Awards page describing our recent winners.
