The 20th Anniversary Summit is Moving to a Virtual-Only event
We’ve been closely monitoring the situation regarding COVID-19 and associated variants, and we have come to the difficult decision to move our 20th Anniversary Summit to an all-virtual format.
After many conversations with constituents, presenters, and staff, the consensus is that conditions are such that it would be a challenge to ensure the health and safety of participants, especially because our community is at higher risk for serious complications of the COVID-19 virus. Although we are disappointed that we won’t be able to get together in person again this year, we believe this to be the safest course of action.
The good news is that we plan a vibrant online event with many opportunities for networking, participation, and education, as we did last year. All the events that were scheduled for the physical event will be included in the virtual event.
The virtual format eliminates travel costs for attendees, so we welcome you, your colleagues, and peers to register today for the 20th Anniversary Summit!
We’ll release the full schedule shortly, but some of our speakers include:
- William L. White – Distinguished Recovery Historian
- Dr. Miriam Delphin-Rittmon – Assistant Secretary SAMHSA
- William Cope Moyers – VP of Public Affairs & Community Relations for Hazelden Betty Ford
- Tom Hill – Senior policy advisor at the White House ONDCP
- Tracie Gardner – Legal Action Center’s VP of Policy Advocacy
- Dr. John Kelly – Founder & Director of Recovery Research Institute
- Dr. Nora Volkow – Director of NIDA
