2021 Conference Survey Results

By Christine

Every year, it is NDASA’s goal to improve the experience for attendees at our Annual Conference & Trade Show. Therefore, we rely heavily on our post-conference survey to inform the look of our next event. Your input has been invaluable to our planning process for 2022 in Indianapolis, which we hope will be NDASA’s best conference yet!

Although this year’s conference offered some different opportunities, with the hybrid model, we are happy to report that attendees were very enthusiastic about their experience. We also had a record response rate to the survey.  

Some Highlights

  • 91% of respondents rated the conference as Good, Very Good or Excellent.
  • 77% rated it as Very Good or Excellent.
  • The virtual component of the conference also received positive feedback with 89% rating it as Good, Very Good or Excellent.

Our dynamic keynote speaker, Johnny C. Taylor Jr. opened the conference and captured the top rating for general session presentations. Attendees reported that his remarks were the most informative.  that attendees felt was the most informative.

Attendees also approved of having the virtual option at this year’s conference. Not only did it allow individuals who could not travel during the pandemic to participate, but it also was a great addition to the format because it provided those at the conference access to sessions they could not attend in person due to scheduling issues. It also allowed them to revisit favorite sessions. (Don’t forget, if you are interested in viewing a session again, or for the first time, every element of the event is now available on demand to view at your convenience.)

Our pre-conference training classes and break-out workshop sessions also rated very high with attendees who appreciated the expert level of instruction, having the opportunity to learn the most updated industry information to pass on to their staff and clients, and the variety of topics covered.


  • “Great Job!!!”
  • “Great speakers!”
