The NDPA Board of Directors is happy to announce that 2022 National Water Safety Conference will be held in a hybrid format with both an in-person and virtual attendance options. Conference attendees can attend the conference in whatever way fits their needs and have access to industry leading education, recent research, and top-of-the-line networking.
Our hybrid format for the 2022 NWSC allow us to ensure we can provide you the best experience and continue our mission of drowning prevention regardless of what the world throws at us. As we stated during the 2020 National Water Safety Conference Online, “Drowning won’t stop, so neither will we!” We think this still rings true, so no matter what, you can count on us to keep water safety moving forward!
1. What is a hybrid conference?
A hybrid conference has both in-person and virtual attendance options. Attendees will participate through conference website designed specifically for hosting the virtual side conference. The conference website is www.WaterSafetyConference.org. The conference will include a range of different activities including networking sessions, live general sessions and keynote addresses, interactive sessions, live and pre-recorded breakout educational sessions, and so much more.
Attendees can choose to attend the in-person conference (just like a normal conference) and have access to all in-person events and education. Attendees can also attend the virtual conference and access conference events and education through the conference website. Attendees can get the benefits of both by purchasing an all-access-pass that gives them access to the in-person and virtual conference.
2. Who should attend?
The conference is a great fit for anyone involved in child safety advocacy, injury prevention, safety education, water safety, drowning prevention, first response, public health, public policy, aquatics, and many more areas!
3. What are the technical requirements needed to participate?
