Welcome to the ISVMA Annual Convention! Convention is ISVMA’s annual flagship event — an opportunity to provide a great service to its members and also a great opportunity for our members to support our association. Convention is the best value for high-quality continuing education and a great venue for connecting with colleagues from all over Illinois. Our Exhibit Hall provides opportunities to explore new relationships or reconnect with our industry partners. Visit our vendors and sponsors in the Exhibit Hall — they help to make convention affordable for all. A very special thank-you to our sponsors and vendors alike!
