2021 NAEPSDP Annual Conference

(Via Zoom)


November 30 - December 2, 2021 


NOTE: The NAEPSDP Board has made the decision to have the 2021 NAEPSDP Annual Conference as a virtual conference via Zoom.  This decision was made based on the results of a membership survey regarding members' preferences for the format of the conference and  out of an abundance of caution for the health and safety of our members, guests, and their families.  This will be the Association's second virtual conference.  As we were able to demonstrate in 2020, due to the expertise and flexibility of our membership, the Association is able to conduct an excellent and productive virtual conference.

The theme of this year's conference is

"MOVING FORWARD IN A NEW WORLD."

To see a tentative agenda for the conference go to:

Please put the conference dates of November 30-December 2, 2021 on your calendar and plan to join us.  Also plan to submit a presentation proposal for the 2021 conference.  The deadline for submitting proposals is August 6!  Information for submitting a proposal can be found at:
