NAHDO is pleased to inform you that the 36th Annual Conference “Rising to the Challenge: Connecting Data with Policy” will include a full set of virtual sessions as well as several exciting pre-conference events. 

Due to the continued impact of the pandemic on in-person events, our main annual conference will be virtual again this year. This will allow more people the opportunity to participate both as attendees and presenters while expanding content. With our new event platform partner, we will offer improved opportunities to increase attendee interaction, facilitating network and social interaction. All registrants will be able to view and participate in live interactive sessions and all sessions will be recorded and available for on-demand viewing by paid registrants.
