**Notes regarding the 2021 Schedule: It is customary for the conference program to include a “NACCS for Beginners'' session, an orientation meeting for newly elected officers, and two (2) separate Foco/Caucus meeting times. In lieu of the NACCS for Beginners session, new members will be directed to a virtual welcome and orientation. Next, given the cancellation of the Seattle conference and fair degree of leadership turnover, NACCS will postpone the Leadership Orientation to a future date. We have scheduled one meeting for each of the Focos and Caucuses during the 2021 conference for members and leaders to conduct group business/activities and (re)establish leaders. Subsequently, the Foco/Caucus should notify the NACCS board with the contact information of members who will take leadership of the Focos and Caucuses going forward.
