What are OCHEC Bucks?  OCHEC bucks are something we've been working on for the last few years and we are so excited to be able to roll them out this year. Here's how they will work.
* OCHEC bucks can be spent at many different vendors throughout the Convention Hall, just like Cash
* Participating Vendors will be clearly marked on their signs
* OCHEC bucks can be combined with real cash to make purchases
* They are not redeemable for cash and must be spent during the 2018 OCHEC Convention
* You will be able to pick up your OCHEC bucks starting the first day of convention
* Additional OCHEC bucks can be earned by volunteering  More Information  Sign Up to Volunteer
