Why Partner with IOA?

Sponsoring and exhibiting at IOA’s Annual Conference gives you the chance to share your newest programs, services, and products with more than 450 organizational ombuds and related professionals who gather to present and learn from their colleagues. Gain direct access and raise your visibility with this key audience; choose a sponsorship package, targeted sponsorship, or exhibitor opportunity available at a variety of price points to work with almost any budget.

The IOA 16th Annual Conference will help attendees think about, learn, and address the distancing challenges ombuds and our visitors are experiencing as a result of the pandemic as well as other kinds of distancing so many are experiencing around social issues of racism, polarization, and other deep divisions. Additionally, with IOA rolling out a broad rewrite of the Standards of Practice & Ethical Principles, there can be a focus on how these changes may impact our role as ombuds in our organizations and society.

Who Is IOA and What Is an Ombuds?

The International Ombudsman Association (IOA) sets the standard for excellence in practice and demonstrates the effectiveness of the organizational ombudsman role to organizational leaders, policymakers, related professions and associations, and the public. We have more than 800 members who work in or with corporations, universities, nonprofit organizations, government entities, and non-governmental organizations.

Organizational Ombuds are designated neutrals appointed or employed by an organization. They facilitate the informal resolution of concerns of employees, managers, students and, sometimes, external clients of the organization, and bring systemic concerns to the attention of the organization for resolution.

IOA is a tax-exempt organization under IRS Section 501(c)6.
