NAFA 11th Biennial Conference 

The 2021 NAFA Biennial Conference will be held virtually July 13 – 15, 2021.

The NAFA Biennial Conference will be organized around the theme of “Embracing Change.” NAFA members have many diverse roles in different contexts, yet one constant is that our field and our institutions – and indeed, our society – are always changing. This is especially true in 2020, and we expect the interests of our members to reflect the changes and upheavals experienced by our students and institutions today. We are thus building a different kind of conference, both in style and content. 

The conference will include: 

- Live, synchronous content July 13-15, 2021 (estimated at about 4-5 hours per day), including keynote presentations, panels and interactive workshops
- Navigating Implicit Bias in Fellowships Advising;
- Several asynchronous sessions accessible before, during, and after the conference
Networking opportunities.
- New advisor workshop prior to the conference (date TBA, included in the registation fee). 

Registration: will be available late January 2021 

Cost:  TBA
