Interested in Hosting an ISA Conference?

Are you interested in hosting an ISA conference? Please follow the steps to initiate the process:

  • Determine your planning team and program chair - this group will be responsible for managing the process from start to finish.
  • Check the ISA master conference calendar (below) for potential dates to host your conference. Please note: requested conference dates are subject to ISA Headquarters review and approval.
