In 2020 and 2021, the OI Foundation converted the biennial OIF National Conference to virtual events due to the COVID-19 pandemic. In the last two years, the OI Foundation has reached over 900 members of the OI community (including international) to provide educational sessions and mutual support programming. Education is a pillar of the OI Foundation’s mission and we strive to provide the OI community with the most up-to-date resources. We hope you can join us this year on July 9, 2022 for the third Virtual National Conference!
