RISE20 Virtual is just a few weeks away, but there is still plenty of time to register! While this year’s conference will look different from years past, attendees can expect the same top-quality education delivered in a dynamic virtual platform that will allow for live Q&A with presenters, communication and collaboration with fellow professionals via chat, one-on-one support from NADCP training division staff, and a robust virtual expo hall.
