In-Depth + 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.
