2022 AIR Forum

June 6–9, 2022 | Phoenix, AZ 

In a world of constant change, the need for higher education professionals to get together annually to learn, connect, and share has never faltered. After gathering virtually for two years the 2022 AIR Forum will be back in person June 6–9 in Phoenix, Arizona. 

With all the challenges we’ve faced, find community in joining your higher education colleagues for a unique opportunity to network, share best practices, and learn from practical workshops and sessions led by the field's leading experts. 

All events, including pre-conference education, will be held at the GBAC STAR™ certified Phoenix Convention Center with two convenient host hotels just steps away: the newly renovated Sheraton Phoenix Downtown and the Downtown Hyatt Regency. We hope to see you there!
