NASCA Spring Conference 2020 Update

As you can imagine, the NASCA staff and Executive Committee are working diligently behind the scenes as it relates to the Spring Conference currently planned for May 11-13th in Indianapolis, IN. 

The CDC has recommended that no gatherings of more than 50 people take place for the next eight weeks. Our top concern is the health and safety of our members. 

We are conducting an analysis of several scenarios and are tracking this very closely with our Executive Committee. New information comes in daily and, before sending additional member updates, we want to make sure that we are working in unison.

At this time, we are working through alternative solutions that will provide a valuable and engaging connection for our members. We also know that many of our members, speakers, partners, and sponsors may have limited capacity even after the CDC lifts the travel and gathering recommendations. We hope to provide more concrete and detailed information in the coming days. 

Who We Are:

NASCA's Mission is to help state chief administrators (CAOs) and their teams strategically transform state government operations through the power of shared knowledge and thought leadership.

Founded in 1976, the National Association of State Chief Administrators (NASCA), is a non-partisan, nonprofit, 501(c)3 association representing state chief administrators. NASCA’s primary state government members are Cabinet level and senior public officials that oversee the departments that provide operational support to other state agencies. Common areas of oversight by NASCA’s primary member can include general services, procurement, facilities, information technology, risk management, accounting, budget, human resources, and more. NASCA encourages the participation by deputy directors and senior level staff that support the state chief administrators.
