Fraternity Events


International Convention is held in each odd calendar year to celebrate AOII’s biennium. At this event, business of the Fraternity is conducted and Council Members elect AOII’s Executive Board and Foundation Board. All AOII members are invited to attend this exciting event where they have the opportunity to network, engage in AOII rituals, celebrate chapter accomplishments and experience AOII traditions and sisterhood!

The 2021 AOII International Convention will take place virtually for the health and safety of our members due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Please watch the video below for more information.


Leadership Institute

Leadership Institute is held in each even calendar year in Brentwood, Tennessee. The educational leadership event offers training, workshops, educational programming and opportunities to connect with members from all over North America. At this event, attendees have an opportunity to exchange best practices and discuss strategies that will help elevate their chapter experience.

While COVID-19 impacted our world, our Fraternity and our members in unprecedented ways and forced our in-person event to be canceled, AOII is proud to have hosted our first ever Virtual Leadership Institute. While we were sad not to gather in person to participate in sisterhood, education and celebrate our members, the virtual event was a huge success! View a recap of the event including award winners and presentations.

Strike Out Arthritis! with Major League Baseball

Thanks to strong relationships between the Fraternity and Major League Baseball Teams, fundraising events are held every year at ballparks throughout North America. The opportunity for a sisterhood event coupled with a fundraiser from ticket sales benefits both the Arthritis Foundation and AOII.
