OCA Annual Meeting 2018 Presentations
Our Spring meeting with Annual General Meeting was a day full of informative sessions and an opportunity to meet with colleagues.
Copies of the presentations are available to registered members in Members Only section. You can follow this link to get to the slide decks. Of course these can't give you the full experience. Plan on joining us In Niagara Falls in May 2019 to get the full story.
Custom Coroner Jackets
A new vendor recently came forward with two types of jackets to help keep you warm and dry in the field. Chose either a 3 in 1 cold weather or wind and waterproof version. Both can be customized with OCA and OCC logos. A reflective coroner patch can be sewn on or detachable so you can get more use out of your garment.

The OCA gets no financial benefit from the sale of these items.
