It’s Time to SAVE THE DATE… Event Registration Opens March 15 for the OAC’s 6th Annual Your Weight Matters National Convention!
Plans for the OAC’s 2017 National Convention are moving along quickly, and we know that many of you have been waiting patiently for news on one of the most important Convention details…the opening of registration for YWM2017!
Well, GET READY to mark your calendars: Event Registration for YWM2017 opens March 15, and there’s no better time to time to make your plans for attending this one-of-a-kind event than RIGHT NOW!
With the long-awaited opening of Convention Registration, the OAC will also be offering competitive rates for early registrants through our special Early-bird savings period – where the most affordable rates for registration will be offered! Don’t miss your chance to register early and save!
- Single-day registrations starting at just $40/day – a great benefit if you are most interested in only attending our top-notch education sessions, Healthy Living EXPO and gaining access to the group exercise classes
- Full Convention Registration for just $95 – a great benefit if you’re looking for the full Convention experience, complete with access to main education sessions, the YWM Healthy Living EXPO, group exercise classes, evening social events and much more!
In addition to these benefits, the National Convention will again offer CE (Continuing Education) credits for nurses and some health professionals attending this valuable event. These credits are also eligible for our special Early-bird rates, so it’s a great opportunity to register early for the event and learn what your patients learn! Many health professionals choose to attend the Convention each to benefit from the same great education that their patients receive, and while the Convention Program awaits approval from the credentialing agency, we are aiming to once again offer more than 14 CE credits this year for our health professional attendees.
As an extra bonus for taking advantage of these amazing discounted rates, early registrants will also benefit by receiving entry into our special incentive contest – details to come soon!
Join us in New Orleans for another unforgettable Convention that promises to give you everything you’ve been looking for with the right education and support in your weight management journey!

The OAC’s Convention Scholarship Program is designed to open doors for individuals to come and receive important tools and education for managing their weight and health who may not be able to afford the expense of attending otherwise. Each year, we have a limited amount of funds available and are unable to afford monies to all who apply. In 2017, we want to change this! We want to give any individual with a desire to attend the Convention to opportunity to attend this life-changing meeting – but to do that, we’re seeking individuals who will step forward and support this initiative by making a tax-deductible donation!
Will you help give the gift of education? No matter the amount you are able to give, your support can impact the life of someone else who is seeking the right tools and resources for their journey with weight and health.
