The 2022 NAACO Annual Conference will take place February 14–16, 2022, as a hybrid experience in both Philadelphia, PA, and online. Whether joining us in-person or online, expect the same quality education, networking opportunities, and lineup of speakers that you’re used to!

NAACO Annual Conference
Creating Impactful Moments in a Changing World


In light of current events surrounding the pandemic, the NAACO board of directors has voted to replace the in-person conference that was scheduled for February 2021 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania with a virtual conference February 22-25, 2021. This decision was not made lightly. The health and safety of NAACO members is of primary importance and was ultimately the deciding factor. The Board is currently evaluating options as to if and when NAACO will rebook a future event in Philadelphia. 

Though we will not be able to meet in person, we are committed to bringing you an event that keeps NAACO members engaged and connected during this challenging time. NAACO will provide a unique online experience with the same level of excellence in educational sessions you have come to expect at the annual conference.  More details will be shared in the coming weeks and months; here is what we can share now:

  • The conference platform will allow for networking, interaction with sponsors, as well as a few fun items along the way. This will be a robust conference experience.
  • Registration information, including fees will be posted on the NAACO website by the end of August.
  • We are moving forward with the call for proposals, so if you are interested in speaking, please visit our website.

Please stay tuned for more information. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us at
