About the Ohio Recruiters AssociationThe Ohio Recruiters Association (formerly OAESP) is a non-profit organization serving the search and recruitment industry by offering best practices & educational opportunities for our members.
The organization is comprised of member firms, with areas of specialization ranging from information technology to health care to telecommunications to sales and marketing. Members and prospective members are encouraged to contact the appropriate member of the Board of Directors with questions they have about membership or involvement in the organization, and upcoming functions.
In February 2013, the Ohio Recruiters Association changed it's name from the Ohio Association of Executive Search Professionals. In December 2005, the Ohio Association of Executive Search Professionals changed it's name from The Mid-Ohio Association of Executive Search Professionals (MOAESP). MOAESP was originally incorporated on March 5, 1997, but has its roots in a chapter of the Ohio Association of Personnel Services (OAPS), the Mid-Ohio Chapter, which was re-formed in December, 1994. Membership, at that time, was open to OAPS member firms in Coshocton, Delaware, Fairfield, Fayette, Franklin, Hocking, Knox, Licking, Madison, Marion, Muskingum, Perry, Pickaway, Ross, and Union counties, "and OAPS members in any other counties who would select the Mid-Ohio Chapter as their designated local Chapter." The original Directors of the Corporation of the MOAESP were Marilyn Wallace, Howard Roof, Florence Lang, and Angela Walters. The MOAESP is no longer affiliated with the OAPS, and membership in that organization is not required for membership in the ORA.
