Update on NAHAD’s 2020 Convention in the Bahamas
NAHAD will host next year’s Annual Convention at the Atlantis Paradise Island from April 24-29, 2020. Although Hurricane Dorian recently hit the Bahamas, thankfully its main path did not include a direct hit on Nassau. The Atlantis experienced very minimal damage and management has assured NAHAD there will be no issue hosting the Annual Convention.
If you are interested in helping with relief efforts, the Atlantis is asking for donations to the Atlantis Bahamas Hurricane Relief Fund where 100% of the proceeds will be donated to the Red Cross. Visit bit.ly/HurricaneDorianRelief for details. You can also listen to Atlantis Paradise Island’s Christina Fischer about the luxury resort’s ongoing charitable efforts to help Bahamians devastated by Hurricane Dorian.
Member survey results are in
Earlier this year, NAHAD asked members to complete a survey about the organization. In it, respondents indicated that networking was the most valuable service the organization provides, followed by hose safety initiatives and research products. See more details here.
