Excerpt From The OMA Constitution

One order of business at the OMA’s initial meeting on November 11, 1910, was to draft a Constitution. After declaring the organization’s name to be The Ohio Manufacturers’ Association, the Constitution clearly lays out the focus of the association’s work:

“The object of this Association shall be to promote the general welfare of productive industries in the State of Ohio, to advocate a public policy favorable to the development of such industries, to oppose propositions that would tend to restrain such development, to develop a relation of mutual helpfulness between those engaged in such industries, to create a medium that will facilitate the exchange of information relating to the same, and to keep prominently before the  public the importance of such industries for the general prosperity of the State.”
