IOA Annual Convention 2020 - CANCELED

2020 Convention Logo

Out of an abundance of caution amid the COVID-19 pandemic and the Governor's Phase 4 guidelines, the IOA has canceled the in-person portion of our annual convention.

The meeting was originally scheduled for Sept 10 - 13 in Springfield, IL. This is the first time the IOA has had to cancel a major event.

While the in-person schedule of events for the annual Convention is canceled, there are several key components of the annual meeting that will be reconfigured.

·    House of Delegates and installation of the 2020-2021 President's Cabinet will be convened on a virtual platform.
·    In the Fall of 2020, the IOA will be offering 3 hours of free online CE to members on safe opioid prescribing.
·    Members also have access to take the required 1 hour of free online CE for sexual harassment training. Please click here to register.
·    Both courses will be available to non-members.

Save the Date

We look forward to seeing you again at a NEW location for the 2021 Convention in Schaumburg, IL, taking place September 16-19, 2021.
