Indepth + Intense Learning

Main Tracks Provide Up to 15 Hours of Credit

Unlike webinars or one day conferences, NCFADS provides professionals and students with in-depth and immersive knowledge, taught over the course of 5 days, and by nationally recognized experts in the field.

Flexible School Packages

Mini-Track, Plenary-Only, and Full School

We understand the pressures of being a professional in the field, and furthermore recognize the struggles of acquiring much needed continuing education while operating a private practice. We offer seven flexible school packages for your convenience.

Connect. Network. Engage.

Meet Professionals from All Over the Globe

Networking is critical in today’s fast-paced and tech-centric world.  However, there is no better way to form long-lasting and worthwhile connections like face-to-face networking. There are plenty of opportunities during the School to meet and connect with individuals and organizations that may be able to advance your career or professional practice.

Things to Do In Wilmington, NC

“Wilmington is a port city in North Carolina. It’s known as a gateway to Cape Fear Coast beaches like Wrightsville, with its strong surf, and Carolina, with its long boardwalk. Part of downtown’s Historic District, the Riverwalk is lined with restaurants, galleries and shops. It runs along the Cape Fear River, where the Battleship North Carolina is moored. Artifacts on the ship explore WWII naval combat history.”
