The NAD Board has been monitoring the COVID-19 situation closely to determine what is in our best interests as it is very serious. We cherish our community, and above all, prioritize our safety and health. Due to this health situation, the Biennial NAD Conference in Chicago during the first week of July will not happen.
The NAD Bylaws require the NAD to host two things this year. First, the Council of Representatives meeting, which includes discussions and voting on priorities, bylaws changes, and election of the Board. And secondly, we must host the Forums which allows the community to share input on proposed priorities. Both of these are required to happen this year, during even numbered years. The NAD Board is figuring out options on how to make this happen and we will share updates soon.
If you made hotel reservations at the Sheraton, don’t forget to cancel your reservations.
In addition, the YLC session for 2020 has been postponed to next year. More information will be shared by the NAD Youth Program Director, Chanel Gleicher Bonheyo, soon.
