Thank you to everyone who joined us in Houston for the 2019 Annual Conference. We were excited to have 950 people from 49 states and 4 different countries (Canada, Singapore, the Bahamas, and the United States) in attendance.
NODA Gives Back:
Through our partnership with the Hilton, we were able to donate 185 pounds of food to Second Servings, which provides meals to various shelters in Houston.
All remaining books from the Authors Events and exhibit hall were donated to the Houston Public Library Foundation
