Educational Opportunities

OSAM has many educational opportunities for association executives and staff throughout the year.  Please visit our calendar for a full listing of all events offered.  The Annual Conference typically offers 6 hours of Continuing Education (CE), as well as ample networking time.  We hold multiple educational programs/membership meetings at our Allied Member's venues.  Hosting one of these meetings is a great way for our Allied Members to showcase their property.

Special Interest Groups

Learn from your peers and share your experiences.  Enhance your professionalism and network with your peers through our Special Interest Groups (SIGs).  The informal gatherings, exclusively for OSAM members, offer extremely valuable information.  These groups meet at various times througout the year at varying locations.  It is a great way for you to share your experiences at your organization and learn tips and tricks from others!
