Each year the International Ombudsman Association hosts an annual conference to promote the Organizational Ombuds profession, provide relevant educational content and offer enriching networking experiences for attendees. In preparation for the Eighth Annual Conference, organizers are requesting proposals for sessions that are educational, engaging and help enhance the skills and knowledge relevant to the profession. The Committee is accepting proposals for the following conference presentation formats:
- Concurrent sessions (90 minutes)
- Plenary sessions (60 minutes)
- Keynote speeches (60 minutes)
- Preconference courses (4 or 8 hours)
Historically, attendees of the IOA annual conferences have been new and experienced Organizational Ombuds practitioners hailing from various sectors, as well as individuals, organizations and agencies interested in developing Ombuds programs and/or learning about conflict management.
