2021 Annual Conference & Trade Show

The most dynamic gathering of professionals in the drug and alcohol testing industry.

May 25-27

St. Louis, Missouri

Turning Setbacks into Bouncebacks!

Invaluable professional training sessions, nationally-respected speakers and leaders, great networking opportunities – all with the common mission of supporting excellence in the drug and alcohol testing industry and promoting safe and drug-free workplaces. This is what NDASA’s Annual Conference is all about.

After a year like no other, the 2021 conference in May looked slightly different. The event was a hybrid combining both the traditional onsite conference with the addition of a virtual component.

While there was a fantastic turnout in St. Louis of in-person attendees, the event’s virtual component was also a hit with NDASA members, their colleagues and partners in the drug and alcohol screening industry. One of the major benefits of the virtual format, has been that all sessions of the conference were recorded. This means, anyone can take advantage of its many exceptional learning opportunities going forward.

NDASA is now offering the 2021 Conference on demand.
