Hosting FOBA every two years is a complex endeavor for our all-volunteer organization and a labor of love for our board, conference committee, and other volunteers who work throughout the year to ensure its success. The more hands involved, the lighter the work for all and there are many ways to support FOBA before, during, and after the conference.

Conference volunteers contribute in a variety of essential ways. Whether helping with setup and take down, staffing the information desk and check-in, directing participants to events, being a classroom helper, selling raffle tickets, or assisting with evening programs, we welcome you to share your time and talents to ensure a successful FOBA for all.

Details about volunteer opportunities at FOBA 2024 will be available soon. In the meantime, if you are interested in volunteering in any capacity, we would love to hear from you. Please contact Cindy Luxhoj at to express your interest.

Another way to contribute is with a tax-deductible donation or conference sponsorship. Both support our educational mission and help keep costs affordable for FOBA participants, while enabling us to compensate instructors fairly. Donations also help us build up seed money necessary for future conferences and programs. For sponsorship information, please contact Jean Wyatt at
