Redefining Justice

The 2021 NLADA Annual Conference will take place November 9-12 and will primarily be a virtual event with limited in-person offerings in Nashville, Tennessee.

After careful consideration of all factors, NLADA has decided that it is in the best interests of our members to offer virtual programming in order to avoid large in-person gatherings to protect the health and safety of our community. We will, however, offer some in-person programming for a limited number of people who are able to travel safely to Nashville. We will enforce strict COVID protocols for this programming, which will include requiring proof of vaccination, wearing facemasks, social distancing, and other specific measures that will be provided.

Registration for both the virtual conference and the in-person component are now open. In-person registration is limited to 100 people on a first come, first served basis. Click here to learn more about registration.

The virtual program will be a special mix of events that balances our community’s continued need for training and education while also recognizing the very real impacts of “Zoom fatigue” on all of us. Our conference will include some of the educational training workshops that have always been a highlight of the program, and this year we are adding a special series of “Strategic Issues Discussions.”

The in-person program will consist of four training tracks. Each participant is required to select a track at registration and must stay in that track for both days in Nashville. In-person registration includes registration to the virtual program, and in-person sessions will be scheduled so you can attend both.

Events in Nashville will take place at the Renaissance Nashville Hotel located at 611 Commerce Street, Nashville TN. Our special conference rate is $249/night (plus taxes) and is available from November 4 through November 16 if you want to arrive early or stay after the conference.
