Orlando is the place to be for the 2012 AOJ annual convention!
The spirit of artist G. Dyer’s work, “Transformation,” captures the essence of the 2012 convention theme, “Transforming Our World.” Hear from leading political figures and analysts about Election 2012; former slaves and abolitionists in the 21st-century fight against human trafficking; a "Hero of the Planet" and others on the environment and climate change; warriors and generals about the end-game for America’s foreign conflicts; and a new breed of crime monitor on the Internet.
Participate in a realistic crisis-management scenario organized by a pioneer in simulation strategies and technology. Join colleagues and invited experts at critiques and AOJ University.
Enjoy The Rosen Shingle Creek Hotel, your home away from home, with its endless amenities: golf, restaurants, bars, pools, nature and jogging trails, spas and more.
