. 2021 Virtual AGM!

2021 IOIA Virtual AGM! March 4
Not Just Another Zoom Meeting!

It seems like years since our 2020 AGM! We can't meet in person in 2021, so we will meet virtually using the GoToMeeting platform. You might remember our discussions of carbon neutral meetings in Huatulco, Mexico two years ago. The pandemic has forced us to do things differently and to try new things. This is one of those golden opportunities.

Could our inspector community possibly engage better from our remote locations? Our platforms allows us to have up to 25 people on the call at a time with webcam functionality and another 225 able to interact without their camera. We will leave one webcam space open so that 250 inspectors (that means every inspector potentially) can have a chance to speak and be seen. Every member could potentially attend - something that has never happened. This will be a "Town Hall extraordinaire". 

Date and Time of the Annual Membership Meeting:
Thursday, March 4, 2021. 3:00 PM - 6:00 PM (PST) 

Advance Registration is not required. However, we need to ensure a quorum, so please plan to attend or send a proxy with another member.

Flash! Our Keynote Speaker Jochen Kleboth, Head of Data Analytics at Intact, will be presenting on:

"Improving Audit Performance and Planning with Artificial Intelligence Tools"
