NODA Talks
Share |

We are seeking NODA members to serve as NODA Talks speakers during the 2020 annual conference! NODA Talks debuted at the 2019 annual conference. If you missed the session last year, here is a quick video clip to show you what NODA Talks is like!

As you can see, we’re looking for inspiring stories of NODA members who are bringing their personal or professional visions to life. Do you have a unique perspective that you’d like to share? Has there been a moment in your professional career where you learned an important lesson you can pass on to others? Can you share a story about how our work complements the 2020 conference theme of “Focus. Clarity. Vision.”?

We are eager to feature the voices of our own membership as we focus on what matters most in our work!
