Annual Conference

How to Maximize Your INA Conference Experience

INA would like to help you make the most of your time at our Annual Conference.

Conference Facebook Group

Over the last few years we have discovered that those that are active in our Conference Facebook group have a richer and more connected experience once they get to conference.  They build connections before they arrive and those connections continue after conference.  This years Facebook group will be open to only those attending conference to provide for a more intimate experience.  A link to the group is provided in your conference registration confirmation email. If you have not, please contact for assistance. Only those with confirmed registrations will receive the link to the private group.

Group Dinners

While dinner is not part of the Conference Program, the INA coordinates several restaurant locations near our Conference Hotel. Sign-ups for these will be available on the first day of conference at the registration table.


The INA wants you to be able to make the most of the your experience at conference in the location we choose. We work to arrange some events either evenings after the conference program is complete or on the Sunday following conference. You can sign up for these excursion when registering for conference.  

Is this your first time attending INA’s annual conference?

Conference Guides

One of the services we have found helpful to first time attendees is providing you with a Conference Guide. When matched with a Guide you can utilize their experience at past INA conferences by asking them questions and connecting with them when you first arrive on site.  There is a place to mark that you would like a Conference Guide on your registration form, or email for more information.

Conference Orientation

Another tool for the first time attender to an INA Conference is our Orientation that is held Thursday evening before the Welcome Reception. This is your chance to meet some of the INA Staff and Board of Directors.  They will walk you though the basics of what to expect and answer any further questions you have.
