Post Event Access

The live portion of IOA's 17th Annual Conference has come to an end. However, this doesn't mean the learning and fun have ended. All #IOA2022 registrants maintained their access to the networking opportunities and the recordings hosted in the Virtual Venue through December 2022. In early 2023, the recordings will be moved to the IOA Online Learning Center where they can be viewed at any time. If you did not attend the event live you can still participate. Visit our rates and information page to learn more about purchasing Post-Event Access.

The Second Great Pivot to Virtual

We would like to thank the more than 200 IOA members and supporters who took part in the 2022 IOA Conference Survey. After considering the survey input, as well as safety considerations and the persistent uncertainty regarding travel and budget limitations for 2022, the IOA Board of Directors decided to pivot our 17th Annual Conference to a fully virtual format. The safety of IOA members, families and friends, and the protection of our communities were key priorities.

Although we were disappointed that circumstances do not permit us to gather together in person in Miami, Florida, USA in April 2022, we were excited to build upon the success of the 2021 virtual conference experience.
