At the core of this decision was the health and safety of our members. In addition to many other factors and data points used to inform decision making, important findings from the Pulse Survey included that professional development funding had been
cut and travel restrictions had been put into place for the majority of respondents and that the majority of respondents did not feel comfortable traveling even if they were able to, but would be interested in participating in a virtual experience.
Thank you for your participation as having member feedback was extremely helpful in guiding Board discussion.
This decision has many implications on the implementation of the Annual Conference including planning timelines, registration, educational content and supplemental events that are connected to the Annual Conference. Please know that all of those items, among many others, are being taken into careful consideration by the Association staff and Planning Committee as we work to pivot. All involved with related planning teams and those who submitted educational content will be contacted as soon as we can. Thank you in advance for your grace, understanding, and patience.
The 2020 NODA Annual Conference Committee has spent the last year and a half planning an innovative conference experience with the theme of “Focus. Clarity. Vision.” in mind. Although that work will now be realized differently, never has a conference theme been so relevant. We are very proud of their work and look forward to them bringing the ethos of that theme to life in a virtual environment.
While most of us would rather see each other in-person, we know that this is the best decision for the wellbeing of our members. We look forward to having you be a part of the NODA 2020 Virtual Annual Conference. Be on the lookout for more details coming soon.
