The Welcome Desk will be open from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. (EDT) on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday. As the name suggests, the Welcome Desk will provide attendees a welcoming place to start their ASDA Virtual Annual Meeting experience. Think of it as your first stop — the “registration desk” at our typical in-person annual meeting. The Welcome Desk will be staffed by an ADSA volunteer and a member of the ADSA staff, so drop by to say hello, ask questions about the Virtual Annual Meeting, or network with association staff and leaders.
OPEN FROM 9:00 AM - 5:00 PM Eastern
