Event Agenda



The Central Indiana Organization of Clinical Nurse Specialists (CIO CNS) invites you to participate in its 2019 Annual Conference on November 7th, 2019 at the Nest in Greenwood IN.   This year’s CIOCNS conference offers several ways to increase your organizations visibility to conference attendees.  In addition, the CIO CNS offers several different levels of support for sponsors to participate. 

We are very excited about this year’s event as several top name speakers have been confirmed.  Our goal is to attract the largest CIO CNS attendance (from Indiana and surrounding states) than in previous years.  In order to give our speakers adequate time, the conference hours have been extended. 

The CIO CNS conference serves as a venue for participants to meet with vendors to learn the latest advances in health care. Feedback from those who attended the 2018 conference requested more vendor time.  This year, we responded by adding specific vendor time to the agenda. To make this time even more engaging, we will have a fun activity to increase participation to each vendor station.   

Reservations are on a first come- first served basis. Sponsor/exhibitor information registration will be accepted until all spaces are filled and no later than October 20, 2019.  Contact Lisa Fite at lfite@iuhealth.org  for questions. 

Your sponsorship of the CIO CNS conference is appreciated not only by the conference committee but also by the entire CIOCNS membership.  On behalf of the COI CNS planning committee thank you in advance for your consideration.
