It is with great disappointment that the NAACA Board has decided NOT to hold our annual in-person educational conference in July 2020 due to COVID-19. We are however, exploring online CLE options (more about this below and in the future).
In the interest of full disclosure, we considered postponing the live conference until Fall 2020, but a host of problems surround this approach, too--including ongoing uncertainty regarding the pandemic itself, as well as scheduling and funding issues involving both attendees and presenters. Consequently, we have decided that holding a live NAACA conference this year simply is not feasible. We know that the live conference is a key feature of membership for many of you, and we are terribly sorry that circumstances have conspired to prevent it from taking place. Also, we hope to hold a future conference in Pittsburgh, perhaps in 2022 or 2023.
Despite the fact that we won't be able to gather in person in 2020, we are considering other ways to offer you some of the excellent educational programming already lined up. With this in mind, please be on the lookout for an emailed survey inquiring about your interest in video sessions. If sufficient interest exists, we hope to be able to offer live video options with some of our favorite presenters, perhaps on a weekly basis over the summer, and to apply as usual for CLE credit for those of you seeking it. We would very much appreciate your input on the upcoming survey so that we can further investigate providing you with options that best suit your needs. If you are not on NAACA's listserv, feel free to check back here for a link to the survey or email us any comments at email@example.com.
In the meantime, we wish you and your families the very best during these difficult times, and we thank you so much for your ongoing support of NAACA
