Welcome to the 2020 Leadership Conference. National Children's Alliance is pleased to present a three-day virtual conference experience, December 14-16. While we can't be together in person, we have a variety of live and on-demand sessions, a virtual exhibit hall, the much anticipated NCA Annual Awards & Annual Membership Meeting, and live networking opportunities planned to bring us all closer during this challenging time. 
As a conference attendee, you can select from over 50 on-demand workshops and join over 25 live Q&A sessions. All of the live conference sessions will take place on December 14-16. If you happen to miss a live session, no problem! Each live session will be recorded and available on-demand until March 15, 2021. 
Our 2020 Leadership Conference would not be possible without the support of our sponsors and exhibitors. Please take a moment to explore our Virtual Exhibit Hall to learn more about these special organizations. 
We're here to support you throughout your virtual conference experience. If you're having problems, please take a moment to review our FAQ Page for additional information, visit the 2020 Leadership Conference Community to post a question, or email us for support. Please take a moment to explore our conference website and learn more about your virtual conference experience.
