Future Annual Meeting Dates and Locations


The 2022 Annual Meeting is set for October 12-13 in Savannah, GA at the JW Marriott Savannah Plant Riverside District.  This brand new hotel is unique and a site to see.

The AFOA Room Rate is $299.  A link for making reservations will be available soon.

Please note:  those who book rooms must register for the annual meeting at least one month in advance of the meeting or risk being bumped to a higher rate as the discounted rate is for paid members and meeting attendees only.



2023 — note the change in days of the meeting 

AFOA will return to Nashville for its 2023 Annual Meeting thanks to the leadership’s agreement to change the meeting dates from the previous pattern to a Tuesday/Wednesday pattern of meetings.

Plan now for Tuesday, Oct. 17 and Wednesday, Oct. 18, 2023 in Nashville at the Grand Hyatt located at 1000 Broadway, within walking distance of the Gulch and Midtown.  The hotel features one of the highest outdoor rooftop bars in Music City, a spa and seven food and beverage experiences.

AFOA’s Room Rate is $319 per night.  More details will be provided on how to access this discounted rate as we get closer to the meeting.



The 2024 Annual Meeting has been set for Wednesday, Oct. 9 and Thursday, Oct. 10.
