Our 21st Annual Conference is themed: Empowering Through Access. The Conference is really two Conferences – one virtual and one in-person. The Virtual Conference will be held over five Fridays – October 15, 22, 29 and November 5 and 12; the In-Person Conference will be held Thursday, November 11, 2021 – Saturday, November 13, 2021 at the Doubletree by Hilton Portland Hotel. Note that the Friday of the in-person event overlaps with the virtual event, meaning that some sessions will be live-streamed from Portland for both virtual and in-person attendees. Choose your engagement by registering for either or both Conferences!

The health and safety of Conference is a priority for NCVLI. NCVLI will continue to monitor and track COVID-19 leading up to the Conference and has developed precautions for the health and safety of in-person attendees. Please continue to check the website for any updates.
