Update on COVID-19

Thank you for your interest in participating in the NADD Ohio Conference. Despite the current circumstances of the COVID19 Pandemic, we are proceeding with the hope that our conference in September will go as planned. However, please know that NADD is first and foremost committed to the health and safety of our extended community. We will be closely monitoring developments relating to COVID-19 to assess the safety of an in-person gathering and will keep you updated. We are already developing plans to have our conference go virtual if need be. Our intention is to have the conference either way: virtually or in person, depending on what is best for our community.
