After much consideration, we have decided to make the 2021 OIF National Conference a virtual affair. The OIF Board of Directors, staff and medical professionals believe there’s still too much uncertainty surrounding travel and large gatherings, and letting this decision linger any longer could create unfair travel burdens or financial hurdles and those are the last things we want for our community.
The success we enjoyed in July with our first virtual National Conference made this decision even easier. Of the thousands who joined us from as far away as Australia, more than half of them were attending their very first conference. Now, we have a tremendous opportunity to build on that reach and amplify that success with expanded programming and even more community elements.
If all goes as planned, the 2022 National Conference at the JW Marriott Grande Lakes in Orlando will be in-person, but will also be available virtually, as will nearly all programming going forward.
We thank you for your understanding and patience as we navigate the Foundation through these unusual times. We’ll release more details in the coming months, but please don’t hesitate to reach out if you have any questions. The OI Foundation can be reached by phone at (844) 889-7579 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
President, OIF Board of Directors
