NRRDA 2021 Annual Conference- Building our Foundation Stronger, Together May 3-5, 2021 San Antonio, Texas
In order to ensure a safe experience for everyone, the NRRDA Board of Directors made the difficult decision to reschedule the Annual Conference in San Antonio to May 3-5. We hope the travel environment by that time allows us to gather and enjoy the hospitality NRRDA is known for.
As things evolve over the next few months we will keep you advised. Safety and comfort are our top priorities and we look forward to seeing you all again in 2021.
The Conference Committee is working to develop another stellar program that delves into the latest issues and trends in the retail and restaurant industry. We know you will learn a lot, network, see old friends, and make new ones - all while earning continuing education credits- that is what NRRDA is all about. #NRRDA2021 #NRRDAfriends #NRRDAeverywhere

It was by far one of the best conference experiences I have had." - Jacob A. Moreno, JD, LLM, Liability Major Case Unit Manager
"The NRRDA scholarship has been very beneficial in allowing me to attend the conference where i have been able to gain some very helpful knowledge in handling liability claims. It has also allowed me to meet some very wonderful people who I have continued to keep in contact with and some attorneys even do work for my company so it's always a pleasure to see them." - National Claims Adjuster

Panel Counsel Meetings
In an effort to assist NRRDA Industry members in reconnecting with their national counsel and increase awareness of NRRDA, we are offering to host Panel Counsel Meetings in conjunction with the NRRDA Conference.
•Panel Counsel Meetings allow NRRDA Industry members to meet with their outside counsel as a group to educate them on their company’s expectations, upcoming goals, changes and protocols, as an efficient alternative of having multiple meetings or individual conversations.
•You will find that your counsel appreciates an opportunity to hear from you about what you are doing, what you want from them and what may be changing – especially given the COVID-19 pandemic and national civil unrest.
•These meetings also provide a beneficial networking opportunity for your counsel to meet each other and foster relationships that benefit your company.
In addition, as a Panel Counsel Meeting host you are eligible for registration, travel and hotel benefits that could cover all expenses.
