“Adult Day Services—Pushing Boundaries to Reach New Heights”

As we prepare for the 2013 annual conference, “Adult Day Services—Pushing Boundaries to Reach New Heights,” we ask you to save the date for October 10-12, 2013. NADSA, in partnership with the Kentucky Association of Adult Day Centers, invites you to join your colleagues from the United States, Mexico and Canada in Louisville, Kentucky. The conference will be held at the Hyatt Regency Louisville in downtown Louisville, Kentucky. The hotel is conveniently located near downtown entertainment—Fourth Street Live!, directly connected to the hotel. Explore famous Churchill Downs, home of the Kentucky Derby, or iconic baseball equipment at the Louisville Slugger Museum. Spend some time to follow the history of Kentucky’s Bourbon Trail or visit the interactive exhibits at the Louisville Science Center, or the Louisville Zoo. The Welcome to Kentucky opening reception will be hosted by the Kentucky Association of Adult Day Centers at the Muhammad Ali Center on Thursday night, October 10, 2013.  Admission to the event will be complimentary for all conference registrants, sponsors and exhibitors.

The  sponsor/exhibitor/advertiser guide is now available on the NADSA website. This year’s schedule includes a networking reception on Friday evening in the vendor area. Please notify NADSA if you know an interested party who would like to become a sponsor/exhibitor/advertiser!
