NAD Human Resources Conference & Union & Local Secretaries Council 2020 Postponed

Event Canceled: With the recent surge of the COVID-19 (Coronavirus), we have been pursuing precautionary measures to ensure that our sponsored events are safe for all our participants. Taking into account the new and emerging information received from governmental and public health sector advisors, the North American Division made a decision to cancel all sponsored meetings through to June 24, 2020 and this included the 2020 NAD Human Resources Conference that was scheduled for April 26–28, 2020 in Indianapolis.

If you are already registered for the event, we encourage you to keep your registration to be applied to the 2021 HR Conference event. The rates for 2021 will increase but for those who have already registered for 2020, you can lock in your attendance for 2021 at the current 2020 rate, with no additional registration charge.

However, if you desire to have a refund of your 2020 registration fee, then this can be processed through AdventSource by sending an Email request to Heather. When the 2021 HR Conference event is announced, you would then have to register at the 2021 rate.

Date/Location: April 26-28, 2020. Sheraton Indianapolis City Centre Hotel, 31 West Ohio Street, Indianapolis, IN 46204,

Description: We invite you to join us at our 2020 NAD Human Resources Conference, "REFOCUS: Who we are, why engage, what motivates and how we serve."
