About COAJ

“Even as a member of COAJ with a primary office outside Central Ohio, the benefits of networking, CLE, meetings, the listserve, and the camaraderie make my membership extraordinarily valuable. It is a privilege to share ideas with this membership. Renae Davies does a terrific job of holding it all together for us.”
