We are excited to announce that NWA will be hosting a 2-day 2024 NWA Virtual Technology, Innovation, and Vendor Management Conference August 6th and 7th.  

The virtual conference is a forum to engage with emerging and pressing developments in technology and innovations that enhance the WIC participant experience by removing barriers to participation.

Topics that will discussed include:
