2021 Directors Forum & Annual Conference

Directors Forum  |  November 8
State Staff Forum  |  November 8
NASDDDS Annual Conference
Breakthrough: A Federal Focus  |  November 9 & 10

After careful reflection and communication with our members, NASDDDS has decided to transition our November annual conference from a hybrid to a virtual format due to increased health concerns and limited ability to travel for many potential attendees.  This is NASDDDS’ fourth virtual endeavor since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic as we continue to support our members during these challenging times.

To support leaders during this period of rapid change, NASDDDS will be hosting a federally focused conference providing direct access to federal decision makers; technical information; and guidance in real time from our federal partners that is unmatched by any other experience. As is our tradition, NASDDDS will hold our Directors Forum and the new State Staff Forum as a unique platform for peer learning and shared experiences. The annual conference, Breakthrough: A Federal Focus, will occur in a streamlined format over two days to maximize the attendee experience within hectic schedules. NASDDDS is proud to present this new approach to our annual conference providing our members and sponsors unprecedented access to cutting-edge topic discussions; networking opportunities; and expert presentations in a flexible format.

Conference highlights planned include:

  • Federal Focus Panel;
  • CMS Office Hours;
  • Federal Quick Hits LIVE!;
  • Networking; prizes; shared learning;
  • AND the return of the One Slide Challenge: ARPA Edition—plus much more!
