Impact Aid: Advocacy, Learn, Connect
After thoughtful discussion and continued monitoring of the COVID-19 public health emergency, the NAFIS Board of Directors has voted to shift the 2020 NAFIS Fall Conference to a virtual event, with free registration. The conference dates will remain the same – September 21-23, 2020. Watch the video announcement from NAFIS Executive Director Hilary Goldmann.
Though we will certainly miss the gathering of the NAFIS Family in person, we believe this is the best approach for the well-being and safety of our community. It also aligns with current and projected guidance from the Washington, DC, government and the operating status of congressional offices.
As with all NAFIS Conferences, our top priority will be Impact Aid advocacy, and a key component of this event is our virtual Hill Day. We are developing conference programming and resources to help you hold effective meetings with congressional staff from a distance.
In addition, we are planning informative and thought-provoking sessions that will keep you up-to-date on Impact Aid and build your knowledge of other timely education policy topics.
We will be announcing speakers, panels and registration in the coming weeks. Keep up to date with the Friday NAFIS newsletter and the NAFIS website, nafisdc.org. In the meantime, please hold the following dates and times on your calendar.
1:00 – 2:15pmET Opening Session
3:00 – 5:00pmET Second Session
1:00 – 2:15pmET Third Session
