2020 Licensing Seminar
September 14 - 17, 2020

Collaboration for the Advancement of Regulatory Activities


Given the current environment and ever-changing restrictions due to COVID-19, and in an effort to keep our constituents safe, NARA leadership has decided to cancel the in-person Licensing Seminar for 2020 and will instead host a virtual event.

Details are still being finalized and will be shared soon. The virtual Seminar will take place on the same dates as the event was already planned for – Sept. 14-17, 2020. Stay tuned for more information.


Leadership: Hear ideas from experts and researchers in the human care licensing field that lead to a better future for vulnerable populations.

Education: Participate in lectures and discussions on a broad range of regulatory topics important to all licensing disciplines and all professional positions.

Collaboration: Access networking opportunities, brainstorming activities and explore common challenges and solutions.

Service: Participate in a Silent Auction that supports a variety of educational and professional growth programs.
