Frequently Asked Questions for the 2022 AINS User Conference

user conference

By: The AINS Team

The dates for the 17th Annual User Conference have been set, and our team can’t wait to welcome new, longtime, and prospective customers! We’re designing a hybrid experience this year, including both virtual and in-person attendance with exciting new programming for all attendees. On-site, attendees will enjoy ample opportunities for networking, community-building, and personal development. Virtual attendees will be able to join our morning livestream on the 3rd, then again on November 10th with the opportunity to network with their peers digitally. All attendees will have the opportunity to explore three main tracks: FOIA, OIG solutions, and the HR Suite.  

To help attendees plan for the event, we’ve gathered frequently asked questions:  

  • Is there a cost to attend the event?
    No – we are thrilled to host our public sector customers. As in previous years, there is no cost to attend the 2022 AINS User Conference. 
  • What if I cannot attend a session or can only attend part of it?
    The conference will be recorded, and videos will be made available for sharing and replay on the AINS site. If you cannot make November 3rd, please join our replays on November 10th with our virtual attendees!  


  • What if I’d like to change my preferred format? (e.g., virtual to in-person or vice versa)
    We understand that circumstances change! You can email us at at any point to make a change. Our in-person seats are limited, however, so if you’re considering joining live, we’d encourage you to reserve a seat.
  • Does AINS recognize customers at the conference?
    Our team uses the Conference to present customers with awards celebrating their great work, specifically, advances in efficiency and program effectiveness. Each year we present the Wayne Jewell Award, named for a former, inspirational leader at AINS, and recognizing outstanding achievement in the field. This year we will be introducing even more awards. Attendees will also enjoy customer panels and highlight sessions that encourage customer best-practice sharing.
  • How can I access the conference?
    You can sign up for either in-person or virtual attendance here. In person attendees will receive parking directions, hotel information, and metro lines on how to best get to our venue. For our virtual attendees, a streaming link to the Conference will be sent via email to all registrants. This link is to access the November 3rd morning sessions. A separate link will be provided with instructions on how to access the afternoon sessions, which will only be available on November 10th for virtual registrants. You MUST register to receive the link.*
  • What types of sessions can I expect?
    2021 represented our most successful conference to-date with more than 500 virtual attendees across two days. Top sessions included the latest FOIAXpress and eCase product roadmaps, new features and functions of FOIAXpress, and demos of AINS’ top modules. Attendees also enjoyed thought leadership discussions on efficiency improvements, change management, eCase Audit and Investigations, and workplace impacts on HR processes. We’re excited to share even better programming this year, alongside networking and community-building sessions with our team.
  • Are CPE credits available for training?
    Yes! As in past conferences, training session attendants will be eligible for CPE credits. We will send certificates in the week following the User Conference.
  • Are there sponsorship opportunities? 
    Our conference is a great opportunity for networking and learning. This year we will be offering three sponsorship tiers for organizations who would like to get involved. Packages include event attendance, a booth onsite, and the ability to share key messages and join in the networking sessions on-site.
