2021 Conference Logo 


Due to the rise in COVID-19 cases over the past several weeks, NCAWA has made the difficult decision to shift our 2021 Annual Conference to an all-virtual event. For the past 18 months, we have all had to rely on grit and resilience to adapt to changing circumstances. NCAWA will strive to do that again as we move forward with our Virtual Annual Conference.

While we are disappointed that we won’t see you in person in Durham, we are excited to present an excellent line-up of CLEs and programs via live webcast on September 30 and October 1.  Virtual conference registration is $99 for members and $129 for non-members.
