The Ohio N.A.A.C.P. holds their annual convention in Chillicothe this week October 10-13.

Ross County NAACP Chapter President Olie Burton says he put the bid in for Chillicothe to host after rave reviews from delegates following the 2000 convention held here.

Burton says the entire community has been great about hosting the convention.

Over 200 delegates from all over Ohio will be here for the event.
