Professional Summit  – Schedule:

During this ever-changing time and after much consideration and discussion by the WVAADC Board of Directors’ Professional Development Committee, the Board has decided to move the 2021 conference to an entirely virtual format. This decision was made keeping in mind the pandemic’s effects on agency travel budgets while also considering the health of our members and communities. We hope you will join us as we move to the virtual format and look forward to connecting with you in a meaningful way in August 2021!
