An UPDATED Message about the Conference and Coronavirus

UPDATE (posted 3/26/20)

At this time, planning for the summer conference in Minneapolis is ongoing and alternatives are being considered. NCDA is carefully observing the state and local health restrictions in the Minneapolis area to determine the viability of the 2020 NCDA Global Career Development Conference. Within the next 30 days, the NCDA Board will determine the outcome of this important event. It is our first priority to safeguard the health of all NCDA attendees and we strive to provide a quality professional development experience. If the COVID-19 crisis makes this event impossible, we will communicate quickly to all involved. Thank you for your patience as we coordinate plans with all of our conference stakeholders.



I know everyone has been inundated with updates about the coronavirus (COVID-19). We know that it is having an impact on many of you. At NCDA we have been involved with gathering information, listening to experts, and thinking through our strategy.


The staff is getting questions about the upcoming conference in Minneapolis.  Our number one concern is the health and safety of our conference attendees. As of March 10th, normal conference preparations continue for this annual event.  NCDA will keep everyone informed if any changes are made to that plan.


For those that are registered and are unable, or uncomfortable with attending, you may transfer your registration to the 2021 Conference in Atlanta or seek a refund through June 1, 2020.  Contact nscrimsher@ncda.org about any transfers or refunds.


Best Regards,
