2021 National Conference


Welcome Reception & Networking
Finish the first day with a welcome reception and enjoy visiting colleagues both old and new! All are invited to mingle, enjoy sweet and savory hors d’oeuvres, and a cash bar.

Breakfast Collaboration Groups
Collaboration Groups are informal groups held in conjunction with breakfast. Attendees will gather around tables to eat, network, and collaborate with other professionals who hold similar interests. Ideas for groups are welcome!  A call will go out for volunteers to facilitate these groups, or e-mail skhamar@ccis.edu  for more information.

Membership & Awards Luncheon
Public celebration of our successes is a part of our 9 Essentials.  You won’t want to miss this time of honoring exemplary partnerships, an outstanding dissertation, and the Jason Kinsey Friend of NAPDS. And, your conference registration includes membership in the Association.  This luncheon will give you the opportunity to meet your elected and appointed leaders as well as to learn more about the Association’s strategic plan, member benefits, financial position, and planned initiatives.
