2020 OPRA Fall Conference

2020 FALL CONFERENCE

We’re Going Virtual!

We’re excited to announce OPRA’s 2020 Virtual Fall Conference this October!

After much deliberation, we decided that this year’s conference will be held exclusively online. We sincerely wish that we could all gather in person, but we’re thrilled about the potential that an online format offers.

We want to make OPRA’s 2020 Virtual Fall Conference our biggest event yet! Holding this event virtually makes it possible for us to come together in a way that has never been done before.

You'll still be able to meet with exhibitors, network, earn CEU's, & attend our awards ceremony!

Plus, you’ll have the option of going back and reviewing the presentations.

REGISTER NOW so you'll receive your conference swag before the conference; courtesy of our Platinum Sponsors!
