A Word from the NCDA President


On behalf of the NCDA board, my heart goes out to all who have lost loved ones, friends, and clients to the coronavirus.  COVID19 has drastically changed everyone's world. It has not only changed the way we work but the way we interact with one another, the way we learn and teach, the way we shop, and most importantly, the way we think and feel.  As your professional home, NCDA is working hard to support our members in every way we can during this challenging time.

Check in with us not only for information but also for support and encouragement. We hope that everyone stays safe at home until we can be safe everywhere.
