Due to the recent spread of COVID-19, the 2020 NDSLHA and NSSLHA conferences will be postponed. NDSLHA will be rescheduled for Thursday, October 1, 2020 at the Sleep Inn. NSSLHA will be held on Friday, October 2 at MSU. To date, we have a few speakers who have confirmed they can still speak on our rescheduled date. We are still waiting to hear from the other speakers. We plan to keep the format similar to what was originally planned.

We will offer a refund for NDSLHA conference registrations. If you still plan to attend the conference in the fall, you can stay registered for the conference rather than be issued a refund. We can offer refunds at any time as we realize it may be dependent on which dates we find for the conference. Please email if you would like a refund.

Please email with questions or concerns. We appreciate your patience as it will take a bit of time to get all refunds processed.

Thanks for your understanding as we keep safety a priority.
