OMAA Online Symposium

Annual OMAA Online Symposium 

The Online Symposium is the biggest annual OMAA PD event for members to share current O&M practice, engage and network with peers and learn about new and exciting innovations, all while sitting in the comfort of your home or workplace. 

This one-day symposium provides evidence and experience-based presentations for Orientation and Mobility professionals and stakeholders. Held online, participants have the opportunity to engage with presenters and audience members through a range of online activities. 

The OMAA Symposium contributes 6 PD hours towards COMS re-certification with ACVREP as it addresses the Core Domains of the OMAA O&M Framework

OMAA are pleased to present our Online Symposium on 30 September 2022.

The OMAA Professional Development Committee would like to say a big ‘thank you’ to the fabulous presenters in our 2021 Online Symposium. Dona Sauerburger entertained and educated us with her presentation ‘Adapting to Change for the O&M profession’. We heard from a variety of presenters that provided us with interesting and informative topics that ranged from looking at 3D printed kits for understanding street crossings to Tactile Map (TMap) automated production, through to looking at the challenges of social distancing and much more!
