OACRAO Summer Institute


OACRAO Summer Institute 2023

After pausing OSI for a few years due to public health and safety concerns, OACRAO is excited to announce the return of OSI in the summer of 2023!

A three-day intensive workshop for members who are new or relatively new to the profession, OSI is structured to provide an affordable experience for those who may not be able to attend out-of-state training opportunities. Experienced professionals from the Board and beyond will
provide not only instruction, but a great chance to develop informal connections in a relaxed, beautiful location.
