Welcome to AFP-NNE's 2021 Virtual Spring Conference! For three days we will focus on the unusual, pandemic-informed situation we find ourselves in. More than a year after the coronavirus turned life upside down, what comes next? How has our work changed, and what remains the same? 

From 9:00-10:30 am each day there will be webinar featuring experts and seasoned colleagues who will provide insights, examples, fresh ideas, and opportunites for discussion. Each webinar will be preceded by an informal networking session from 8:30-9:00 am. Join us to see old friends, meet new ones, and connect with other professionals in your field. Sessions will be recorded and shared with attendees after the conference concludes. 

Registration for the full conference (all three webinars) is $65/members or $90/non-members. To register for the full conference, click the Registration button at the bottom of this page.
