MAY 15 – 17 • HERSHEY, PA

NDASA’s Conference and Trade Show is the largest, most exciting and relevant event of the year for the drug and alcohol testing industry.

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.

These three days of learning and sharing are designed to cultivate and advance knowledge and expertise in the fields of drug and alcohol testing, workplace safety, and public safety.

2024 Keynote Speaker: Tom Arnold

The National Drug and Alcohol Screening Association is pleased to welcome comedian, actor, producer and author Tom Arnold as the keynote speaker for the association’s 2024 National Conference and Trade Show.

Best known for his comedic roles in Hollywood, in his personal life, Tom Arnold has experienced much more serious struggles including multiple health scares and a decades-long battle with addiction. But through it all, he has continued to not only get back up when life knocks him down but also thrive.

Tom has shown incredible resilience and commitment in his journey to sobriety. Sober for nearly 20 years, Tom relapsed after a motorcycle wreck led to an addiction to painkillers in 2007. Several years ago, he relapsed again and once again sought treatment.

This summer, Tom celebrated 5 years of sobriety and the loss of 75 pounds after a mini-stroke. These days, Tom says he is living his dream as a father of two. And he is passionate about telling his story to give hope to others who face the same demons. “Sobriety has saved my life,” Tom told “It’s why I can be a good parent.”
