Supporting Our Members and Funding Our Mission
Scholarships, Excellence Programs, Industry Awards and Fundraising Opportunities
Programs and Services
From honoring industry icons to educating our young people, an important part of the OABA’s mission is to serve our industry and benefit our members. We celebrate and honor the work of those who have made been trailblazers in the mobile amusement industry through annual recognition programs.
Through the generosity of our benefactors and our MAI Foundation, our Association awards college scholarships to young showfolks. We also offer tuition assistance for various industry training programs to our members.
The OABA’s work is solely funded by the generosity of our Members. Our belief is that the organization belongs to the members who raise relevant issues and who will then underwrite the activities of the OABA. The cost to operate the Association, represent members on legislative issues and maintain all the additional programs is funded through Members’ dues, donations and other revenue. The OABA Board has developed several programs to help support the work of the association. Our goal is to make fundraising fun!
