Important announcement - cancellation

Given the continued uncertainty and risks associated with the COVID19 pandemic and its impact on the nation and the world, the NWA Board of Directors, led by Beth Beachy, Chair, has unanimously voted to host a dynamic, two-day 2020 Virtual Conference in June, in lieu of our 2020 Annual Education & Training Conference and Exhibits.

This Virtual Conference format will feature a selection of the outstanding keynote, plenary, and breakout sessions from our planned May face-to-face Conference in New Orleans and will ensure plenty of opportunity for live Q&A. We expect this Virtual Conference will allow attendees to accumulate the same critical continuing education credit hours as the live event. More information about the Virtual Conference, including the event’s specific dates, registration details, and the agenda will be coming soon.

NWA did not take this decision lightly. We recognize that our Annual Conference is a crucial opportunity for our NWA family to re-connect, rekindle, and grow deep and respected friendships, to network with your WIC Community professional colleagues, and to learn important skills and effective strategies from one another.

We appreciate your patience with us during this unanticipated and life-changing challenge confronting all of us. We’ve got your back and will do all in our power to make your WIC lives and WIC world less stressful and more meaningful.  Should you have any questions, please reach out to Chandra M. Champion at cchampion@nwica.org.

Stay safe and stay well.

The Rev. Douglas A. Greenaway

President & CEO
