Each year, NCADD Affiliates and others convene at the Conference of Affiliates for three days of training, networking and socializing. The 2013 Conference will be held October 23-25 at the Hilton ArlingtonÂÂ in Arlington, VA and will have a strong public policy and advocacy component, including an event on Capitol Hill.
Our keynote speaker will be Eric Goplerud, PhD, Senior Vice President of NORC’s Department of Substance Abuse, Mental Health, and Criminal Justice Studies.ÂÂ Kevin Sabet, PhD, Director, Drug Policy Institute and Assistant Professor, University of Florida College of Medicine, will participate in a panel on "Understanding the Current Policy Agenda re. Marijuana and NCADD's Response."
NCADD Vice President of Policy and Advocacy, John Magnuson, has been working with the Planning Committee to identify potential speakers and disseminate preparatory information through webinars and other modes, to make the Conference a fruitful and exciting one.ÂÂ We have planned an exciting interactive, hands-on experiential learning opportunity for members of Congress and their staff while we are on Capitol Hill.
