Dear NBPA Family,
NBPA’s 2021 Chicago Conference chairs and planning committee look forward to providing a safe, informative and inspiring experience for our members. We are working diligently to determine the safest way to host the conference in light of the pandemic. Members of the chicago planning committee are weighing all options responsibly, which includes a possible in person or virtual event.
Thank you to all who have completed our initial survey. Your feedback provided valuable insight and recommendations on how to move forward with this year’s conference. We plan to send a second survey by April 19, 2021.
COVID restrictions in Chicago, Illinois are fluid as we progress through vaccinations. Given that we expect to open registration later than usual, we will still provide ample notice when registration opens. Members will also be allowed to take advantage of discounted prices.
We will continue to update members as we plan and adjust to the new normal. Stay safe & healthy.
-Conference Co-Chairs Erika Gilliam Booker & Sierra Davis
