The Ohio Council on Vocational Education (OCOVE) was created to strengthen the career, vocational, and technical education services provided for Ohioans as a practical, efficient, and sure way to enhance the competitiveness of individual workers and the state and national economy. Some of the accomplishments of OCOVE during its 27 years of operation include the following: (1) 174 persons served on the council, with private-sector representatives always outnumbering those from the public sector; (2) OCOVE conducted approximately 150 conferences throughout Ohio, averaging 5-6 per year; (3) OCOVE involved all of Ohio's 95 vocational education planning districts and the state's 23 two-year postsecondary institutions in its programs; (4) OCOVE issued 150 publications, many of which won awards; and (5) OCOVE made more than 180 recommendations to state authorities for the improvement of vocational and technical education in Ohio, and more than 80 percent of the recommendations were accepted and acted upon. (This report includes a summary of the conferences and presentations that occurred during 1995 and 1996, commendations and recommendations made during 1994-1996, and a marketing strategy for vocational education.)
