Frequently Asked Questions

Who can attend the IKAA Gathering 2019?

The IKAA Gatherings are open to all Korean adoptees ages 18+, their spouses/partners, and family.

Can I volunteer at the IKAA Gathering 2019?

Yes! We love volunteers, especially considering that this conference is run entirely by volunteer efforts! Please contact [email protected] for further inquiry.

If I volunteer, can I receive a discount on registration?

Unfortunately, due to the fact that IKAA is run by an all-volunteer board, it is not possible to receive any discounts as the registration fees go towards meals, activities, and meeting space for the Gathering.

Is there a dress code?

For the most part, the Gathering is pretty casual, but we do have a business attire dress code for the opening ceremonies, formal dress code for the Gala dinner, and a black and white dress code for the Official IKAA After Party.
