We are pleased to announce that the 2022 NWA Annual Education and Training Conference and Exhibits will be held in New Orleans, Louisiana, May 22 – 26, 2022. The venue will be the Sheraton New Orleans Hotel, located on historic Canal Street in the French Quarter.  The Vieux Center also known as the French Quarter is the oldest neighborhood in the city founded in 1718 by Jean-Baptiste Le Moyne de Bienville. The French Quarter is the center of French Creole culture in the United States, and is filled with buildings that date back to the late 18th century. New Orleans is world famous for its architecture, restaurants, and landmarks and it’s festive events like the annual Mardi Gras celebration.

This year’s Conference we will be back in-person and will offer an excellent opportunity to acquire new skills and to network with an estimated 1,000 of your peers, and colleagues along with exhibitors who provide WIC related products and services for your participants. The conference will also offer an opportunity for attendees to hear from USDA officials and to dialogue on relevant updates and challenges that the program faces. The 2022 conference theme is: NWA Celebration: Reuniting, Reflecting and Reimagining!

For the rest of the conference, you will have the opportunity to choose from 30 general and concurrent sessions that is sure to expand your professional skills and knowledgebase to equip you to face coming WIC challenges and to take advantage of current and future WIC opportunities.
