NAWDP strives to develop the professional capacity of workforce professionals by offering a wide variety of applied learning opportunities. 

Available to members and non-members alike, our in-person events provide continuing education programming aligned with the industry's identified core competencies, job functions and specialty practices.  However, members receive discounted pricing and enhanced access to online programming and resources.

Annual Conference

Each year, NAWDP hosts our Annual Conference, which is the overall, all encompassing event with the largest and most diverse attendee list.  There will be a little bit of everything for everyone.     

Youth Symposium

The Youth Symposium (and any other version of Symposiums we have in the future) are mini versions of the conference that center around specific programs.


The Academies

The Academies are very specific to a particular subject, or program, and result in a NAWDP endorsement. Unlike the Annual Conference and Youth Symposium, you don’t pick and choose your track/workshops, everyone receives the same training.



All these events provide hands-on workshops aligned with designated learning tracks: the Annual Conference in the Spring, and the Youth Symposium in the Winter.  For specific dates, please refer to our Calendar listings or check out each events' page.
