Member Give Back Week October 4-8, 2021

Member Give Back! October 4 – 8, 2021
Friends of USDLA,
Since our last gathering in Nashville during the week of July 12th 2019, much has changed in our world. The global pandemic has thrust distance learning to the forefront of our lives with schools on lockdown and our children communicating with instructors through a variety of video conferencing platforms such as Zoom, Google, Teams and plenty others. While they are focused on learning, many of us are using these same platforms to carry on with our everyday lives, from working with colleagues and communicating with partners, to keeping in touch with relatives thousands of miles away.
Our USDLA National Conference has long been an event where we mingle, discuss technology and learn from an audience broader than our own. Nothing can replace those live in-person interactions and conference feedback has always focused on those personal relationships made with one another.
Last year when the world threw us the mother of all curveballs, we pulled together and hosted an online USDLA Virtual Conference. This was a very successful event with fantastic USDLA volunteers, presenters, keynote speakers and attendees from around the world. However, it certainly had many of us wanting those personal interactions that our conference is well known for.
With video conferencing seemingly dominating our lives these days, many of us are experiencing “virtual fatigue” in our daily lives, and rather than develop yet another week of paid virtual conference programing, the conference/events committee has decided to forgo our traditional paid conference this year, and host a USDLA Members Giveback Week with a program focus on the up and coming Public Policy Forum.
This will be a great week! Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday sessions are free to all USDLA members with an active membership.
While this is not our formal USDLA Conference, it will resemble the outline from last years’ virtual conference with a kickoff party the evening of Tuesday October 5th featuring some on-line musical entertainment and a kickoff address by the USDLA executive committee.
Not a member, consider becoming a USDLA Member and take advantage of all the perks, including discounts for the 35th Anniversary Conference in 2022 in Nashville, TN, view over 100 webinar recordings and more!
