Conference & Training August 10-14

National PAL has rescheduled our 76th Annual Training and Conference in New Orleans to August 10 - 14, 2020. Situated in the French Quarter and close to the Central Business District, the New Orleans Marriott is perfectly positioned for one of the best National PAL conferences to date. With style, substance and unparalleled service, this year’s conference hotel is nestled on NOLA’s famed Canal Street with some of the rooms offering remarkable views of the Mississippi River and downtown New Orleans.

Each year the National PAL team and the National Conference Planning Committee aim to provide a superior conference with valuable workshops and quality activities. This year, prepare to add an authentic New Orleans experience complete with a few surprises. The first full day of the conference kicks off with a continental breakfast followed by the return of the Vendor Village - a place where Chapters gather to meet exhibitors to learn more about the products that will enhance the quality of programming and operations of PAL Chapters. Jeff Hood, National PAL CEO, and Barbara Bonilla, National PAL Board Chair, will present the Opening Convocation Welcome along with various esteemed New Orleans guests. The remainder of the day will bring a wealth of training and development sessions in the areas of strategic planning, financial management, volunteer management and more.

Also returning is the annual community service event - our chance to demonstrate how National PAL Cares about the community. Last year, the residents of Skid Row joined us for an old fashioned cookout and received fresh pairs of socks to warm their feet. Shoes and socks are reported to be one of the top five items requested by the homeless and those in need. Knowing this, National PAL members will give each person a complimentary pair of socks and shoes after offering a free foot bath. 

Another highly anticipated event is the 2020 Annual Gala and Awards Presentation. This formal affair provides the chance to look back at the previous year’s success and accomplishments of our PALs throughout the organization. During this event, National PAL also announces the Inspirational Award of the Year recipients which are given to one youth, law enforcement officer, alumni and volunteer who embodies the spirit and mission of National PAL.
