Conference Bag Throwback Event

The Conference Panning Team is supporting a trip down memory lane by encouraging all conference attendees to bring back their previous NADE conference bags.  This nostalgic experience will highlight previous conferences and add diversity to the conference scene.  So, bring your favorite bag!!! You might even bring an extra for a new NADE member or an old friend.

Literacy Project

We need your help! The need is simple. CHILDREN NEED BOOKS. Many children do not have access to books, without books literacy suffers, thus education and opportunities decline. NADE will be collaborating with a local elementary school near National Harbor, MD to promote early development of love of learning and literacy that position students to be successful in school. You can help by donating new (gently used) books that are appropriate for children five years old to 14 years old.  There will be a drop off location in the exhibit hall.
