In 2023, NCAHQ will be reconvening for our annual conference.

The conference will be held on May 8, 2023,

at the JB Duke Inn and Conference Center on the campus of Duke University.

We will be holding the conference in a new venue after a few years of hiatus due to the pandemic , and we will be returning with a renewed excitement!

The 2023 conference theme will be: Innovate, Influence, Improve or Ignite…What’s your Superpower.

We have several wonderful speakers attending the conference in 2023 year and if you cannot make the conference in-person at our beautiful new location, you can plan to attend in a virtual setting as well.

More to come on the conference but for now, we hope you will be able to join us!
