Following a board meeting and orientation, NSA’s 34th Annual Conference will start on Wednesday evening with the opening conference kickoff, where attendees will hear from the organization’s leadership and a few of its passionate members. Also on the agenda:
Something for everyone. The conference offers a wide range of specialized activities and workshops for kids, teens, siblings, and parents. Young attendees who stutter and their siblings can learn from one another in a safe and fun environment, while parents will have the opportunity to connect and learn from other parents, adults who stutter, and respected professionals in the field.
Talent showcase. New to the conference this year is “NSA’s Got Talent,” highlighting members’ creativity, artistic abilities, and talents. Audience members will cheer on their favorite performer and cast a vote to decide who is “best in show.”
Fitness first. For attendees looking to stay active and fit while in Dallas, there’s the NSA Fit! Program. Daily activities, such as group walks and runs, bike rides, yoga, and fitness classes, will give everyone a chance to get moving and maintain their healthy habits while onsite.
