Plan to attend the 2023 Office Professionals Conference on Tuesday, October 31st, and optional pre-conference on Monday, October 30th.

This year the conference theme, Commitment to Excellence, is geared to equip you to serve as leaders in your communities to keep building a strong Iowa. Participants will attend workshops that relate directly to the work you do each day!

And don’t miss the pre-conference tour that features sites and stops around the Iowa State University campus.

The conference begins Tuesday morning at the Iowa State University Memorial Union with a full day of speakers and workshops that will inform and energize you as we strengthen and build our connections to one another, campus, and our fellow Iowans!
All office professionals are encouraged to attend and connect with peers from across the state.
