The National Human Services Data Consortium (NHSDC) is an organization focused on developing effective leadership for the best use of information technology to manage human services. NHSDC provides information, assistance, peer to peer education and lifelong learning to its conference participants, website members and other interested parties in the articulation, planning, implementation and continuous operation of technology initiatives to collect, aggregate, analyze and present information regarding the provision of human services.
This year’s theme is:
Increasing Capacity and Building Connections – Bridging to the Future.
The National Human Services Data Consortium (NHSDC) and the HUD SNAPS Office will be co-hosting the 3-day Spring Conference featuring tracks of HUD content in the morning and NHSDC sessions in the afternoon. HUD SNAPS and partnering technical assistance providers are excited to offer content that will increase knowledge and expertise across Continuum of Cares and help level-set the field for HMIS professionals.
In recognition that a 3-day conference will mean additional hotel nights, NHSDC is committed to keeping the registration cost the same as previous years. In order to do so, two meals during the conference (likely one breakfast and one lunch) will be on your own. The final schedule will include which meals are on your own and we will provide a list of nearby food options at the event.
Watch for the preliminary conference agenda in mid-February.
