Symposium Updates

Welcome to NDS 2022!  We’re so excited to have you with us in Kansas City.  Now we get to put faces and names together as we connect with each other.
We hope you will enjoy the rich array of cultural institutions during your stay in Kansas City.  From the Performing Arts Center, to the Truman Library, to the National World War 1 Museum, we hope to wow you with all that our city has to offer.  May your experiences in breakout sessions, in area tours and with colleagues at meals bring you inspiration for role as a docent or guide.
Enjoy the symposium; enjoy each other; and enjoy Kansas City!
