About The Convention
Each year, thousands of people from across the globe attend the NDSC Annual Convention. For most, it’s to hear the latest information from world-renowned experts. For others, it’s a great vacation. However, for nearly all, it is the one-of-a-kind NDSC “giant family reunion” feeling that permeates the convention weekend that brings them back year after year.
We’ve received many inquiries about what COVID-19 precautions we’ll be taking in New Orleans this June. Our COVID-19 task force has recommended protocols to keep everyone as safe as possible and be compliant with CDC guidelines and City of New Orleans regulations. We’ll keep this information updated for you. (last updated April 26)
