Learn about the issues affecting the alcohol beverage industry in Ohio, along with the latest activities of the Ohio Licensed Beverage Association. The OLBA offers a number of benefits that will benefit both you as an individual and your profession as a whole.

Group Ratings

As a member of the OLBA, you are eligible to participate in our group rating programs. These programs include our Workers’ Compensation Program, through Comp Management, which can save you money off your workers’ compensation premiums. In addition, other programs, such as our general liability and health, life and dental insurance programs will enable you to realize significant savings to your overhead.

Political Action

The OLBA maintains a strong political presence in the Ohio Statehouse. We have built solid political relationships with a number of key lawmakers, and we intend to use those relationships to fight bills that will hurt permit holders and pass bills that will help our industry. The OLBA is committed to protecting your interests, and we will do so, should that fight take us anywhere from your local city council meeting to the halls of the United States Senate.

Leadership Opportunities

The OLBA has a decades long tradition of activism. This means that there is the opportunity for you to achieve a leadership role in the organization, should you be interested in serving as an officer at the state or local level, or to serve on a committee. We are a hands-on organization, and we welcome your input, criticism and participation.
