Virtual Venue Access

The Conference may have come to an end, but your access to the Virtual Venue has not. You and all of your new ombuddies can keep the conversation going and continue watching recordings all the way through December 2021! We hope you stay in touch and continue engaging with other attendees on the Virtual Venue and also on the IOA website.
