2020 NADONA Board Timeline

 

After much consideration by our Board, we have decided to take the 33rd Annual NADONA conference virtual!

Because of the current pandemic, it is important for NADONA to understand the needs of our attendees and business partners that support and sponsor the National Conference. Concurrently, we want to ensure we take all steps necessary to protect the health and safety of all attendees – exhibitors, and associates.

Our goal is for the National Conference to remain a successful event, compelling to attend, with strong attendee turnout – and indeed an event that delivers value to our sponsors. Therefore, we are researching the best virtual and digital event formats that effectively connect members, exhibitors, thought leaders, presenters, and our associates.

In Recognition of Your Hard Work
This is for You, with Love and Respect
“The rest of us have no idea
What these times are like for you
With all the COVID drama
And, the lists of what you do!
You work to keep yourself in check
While you’re pulled in every way.
You are the one they count on
When you have the final say.
You lead your team with dignity.
You offer a calming word
You’re grateful for your team’s support
And, to know that you’ve been heard.
This is your time – this is your path.
You’re stronger than you know.
You are ready for this challenge –
They will follow where you go.
So, take a breath and make it deep
This current road is rough
But nurses know that they were made
To excel when times are tough.”
– Donna Wood, Executive Assistant, StoneGate Senior Living, NEC Member
