STATEMENT ABOUT COVID-19
Your health and well-being are at the forefront of our thoughts as all of us confront the rapid expansion of the COVID-19 virus. This situation encompasses all facets of life – both professional and personal.
While NRRDA was fortunate that the 2020 Annual Conference was not impacted by the virus, the Board of Directors is closely monitoring the current situation and planning proactively to protect NRRDA’s legal and financial interests regarding future meetings and events, including the 2020 Lighthouse Seminar and potential networking events. We will provide updates about future events as information becomes available.
