|2020 NCAN National Conference|
NCAN 2020 Conference Update: Because of uncertainty about whether we can safely gather in New Orleans on Sept. 14-16, NCAN is planning for several contingencies, including the possibility of incorporating virtual elements into this year’s conference. As of today, we are planning to proceed with the 2020 conference as scheduled but we are monitoring the rapidly evolving public health situation and will reassess if necessary. We expect to launch registration for the 2020 conference in July.
NCAN's Call for Proposals is now closed for the 2020 NCAN National Conference, Marching Toward Equity: NCAN’s 25th Anniversary Conference. Thank you to everyone who submitted a proposal. Presenters will be notified of their proposal status by June 1.

New Orleans is also known as the "birthplace of jazz." We are excited to celebrate the 25th Anniversary of NCAN in this distinctive city.
