Community Building

Every year, the IOA Conference is the best way to collaborate and meet with hundreds of your fellow ombuds and this year is no different. The Conference Committee purposefully crafts networking time to ensure that no matter what time zone you reside in you'll still connect, meet, and rekindle friendships with new folks and people you've known forever.
