NOIA hosts many events throughout the year around the Cleveland area. Most of our event ideas are brainstormed by our Committees and members. Below you will find event highlights from this past fiscal year. We also encourage you to visit our Upcoming Events page to see what we have planned next! 


Please note, some events are for NOIA members only. By joining NOIA, you will be invited to all events. We invite members to annual meetings/dinners, social outings, and unique experiences and opportunities that are exclusive to our organization.  Several events are free of charge, and if a cost is included, members receive special member pricing. Members are welcome to bring prospective members to designated outings, as well as invite guests to select events. All events require an RSVP to Angie Ianiro.
