2020 Annual Conference Cancelled

Due to the global COVID-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic, the National Association of Workforce Development Professionals (NAWDP) has cancelled the 2020 Annual Conference originally scheduled for May 4-6, 2020 in Orlando, FL. Protecting the health, safety, and well-being of our members and attendees is paramount, which is why we have come to the decision that the annual conference will not be rescheduled in 2020. 

We recognize canceling the largest gathering of workforce development professionals impacts many of you and your education needs. In response, we are offering the opportunity to transfer your annual conference registration fees to another NAWDP event or to apply toward membership, certification or E-Learning registration fees. 

The next NAWDP event, the Youth Symposium, is scheduled for December 2020 in Chicago, IL. The Youth Symposium will provide hands-on workshops aligned with designated learning tracks. Information regarding membership, certification or current E-Learning opportunities can be found at

We are also offering full refunds of registration fees, which will be refunded back to the original payment method with no cancellation fees. Please make transfer or refund requests in writing to

You are also urged to cancel any hotel reservations or additional travel arrangements you have previously scheduled as soon as possible. If you have further questions, please contact NAWDP at

Thank you for your patience, understanding and unwavering commitment to the field of workforce development and NAWDP.
