#IOA2021 -Networking & Training for Ombuds

Save the Dates!

Conference 22–24 March 2021

International Ombudsman Association members and supporters are invited to mark your calendars and keep an eye out for more information on 2021 events.

The International Ombudsman Association is currently working on plans for 2021 educational events. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are negotiating with the Indianapolis JW Marriot to potentially postpone our in-person 16th Annual Conference to 2023. However, our team is excited to announce that we are planning to provide a fully virtual program in March 2021.

IOA warmly invites you to submit a presentation proposal or speaker suggestions for our 2021 event, Bridging the Distance: Paving the Way for Equity and Justice. This event is scheduled for 22-24 March 2021 and will be a virtual gathering. Additionally, we are not soliciting proposals for pre-conference stand-alone half or full-day courses this year, although we encourage presentations to include components that could occur before or after the 22nd-24th window.

If you would like to be part of the conversation to help shape this unique event, please contact IOA’s Volunteer Coordination Committee at [email protected].
