In the early days of the Ohio Cichlid Association, a bunch of guys would throw an auction to
get money to bring in a speaker for a special event. It became so popular in the local cichlid
community that they kept doing it...and the people kept coming Eventually this loose knit
bunch of guys turned into the OCA. Now we don't wait for a special occaision, we bring those
same world class speakers in for our monthly club meetings. This is one of the best benefits
of membership. You'll be amazed at some of the excellent programs that you'll get to see and
then ask questions of the speakers one on one. Even those in the club who've been there
since day one still learn new things each month. Why don't you join us and get in on the
