Coronavirus Disease 2019(COVID-19) Updated Information

Dear NSLDC registrant:

Our hearts go out to all those whose loved ones and communities have been affected by the Coronavirus (COVID-19). We don’t take the responsibility we have as conference organizers to protect our community lightly. After much thought and deliberation, we have made the difficult decision to postpone our NSLDC National Chicago 2020 Conference and Regional Atlanta Conference taking place this April. Having spent the past year preparing for the conferences with our presenters, exhibitors and conference partners, we’re genuinely disappointed not being able to host you at this time.

We want to thank you, our presenters, and partners for their continuing support, open discussions and encouragements. As everyone has been reminding us, great things happen when the community comes together and connects at NSLDC! For this reason, we fully intend to host both conferences this July, and have provided our new conference dates below. Rescheduling the conferences will enable us to provide the experience you, our presenters, and staff expect and deserve in a safe environment.

We remain excited to host you later this summer! We understand that some of you will still be able to join us in July, while others cannot. Therefore, we want to provide you with the following options as it relates to your registration:

1. Elect to have your registration fee directly transferred to our new dates (Atlanta July 10-11, 2020 or Chicago July 23-26, 2020).

2. Elect to transfer your funds to any of our other NSLDC, Latinx Leads, Black Student Leads, NSLDC Pride, and UCWLC Conferences. Please visit for all our upcoming conferences.

3. Or you may cancel your registration and request a refund. (Refunds will be given only for cancellations received 15 days before the start of the new conference date, less a $50 processing fee per person and any credit card processing fees. No refunds of any kind will be made after the date.)

Please take a moment to inform us of your decision regarding your conference registration by clicking on the link for the conference you will be attending.

Atlanta –

Chicago –

We look forward to hosting you in July.

Until then, stay safe and healthy,

NSLDC Leadership Team
