Reminder – NOHVCC Virtual Annual Conference – October 15-16 – Register Now!
Click here to sign up for the NOHVCC Annual Conference sessions on October 15-16.
Registration is now open for NOHVCC’s free Virtual Annual Conference. The NOHVCC staff and Board of Directors are excited to invite you to participate in the Conference. The sessions and times are detailed below. We encourage all State Partners and friends of NOHVCC to log-in and weigh in!
As we previously reported, the NOHVCC Board of Directors and staff unfortunately had to make the difficult decision to postpone our in-person Annual Conference in Knoxville, Tennessee until 2022. While it may have been possible to gather together this year there were simply too many hurdles to overcome for staff to put together a conference we could be proud of, and that attendees would benefit from and enjoy.
The good news is that NOHVCC staff is preparing a virtual suite of presentations and opportunities to interact guided by your survey responses. While nothing beats getting together, sharing best practices, ideas and recharging for the upcoming year, we hope we can provide an opportunity to facilitate discussion and get everyone ready for 2022 and the likely return to normal for our Conference.
