EVENTS & REGISTRATION

2018 OAC

OCTOBER 26-27, 2018

The Ohio Academy of Audiology recognizes that our members need support to navigate the many changes facing audiology and we're committed to offering the resources necessary for you to be successful.  Mark your calendars now! The 9th Biennial Ohio Audiology Conference (OAC) is coming early to help you thrive in a changing climate.  AAA2019 is coming to Columbus in March 2019 when we would normally hold an OAC.  So, in the spirit of embracing change, we are not only adapting to this disruption, we are making it our theme!

This year's OAC, Unconventional Audiology: Discovering Opportunity, is happening at a new time (October 26-27, 2018), in a new location (Holiday Inn, Strongsville, Ohio) with a new format (single, cohesive track).  This will be an UNconvention: unconventional approaches to familiar problems, identifying opportunities for professional growth in a changing environment, and thinking outside the (test) box.  You can't afford to miss this meeting!  

Change is inevitable, but this year's OAC will prepare you to think creatively and unconventionally and offer you strategies to implement immediately in your practice.  Plus. we will be offering 0.2 hours of ethics - right in time to fulfill your ethics requirement at the end of the licensing year.
