NELA is committed to holding an in-person Boot Camp—so long as it is possible within public health guidelines.
Because this is a rapidly changing situation, and because we know you will need to commit time, travel expenses* and other resources in advance of October, we will plan on giving you frequent updates as to the status of Gallaudet University and Washington, DC public health guidelines which cover this event.
*You may wish to consider purchasing refundable fare travel tickets. For example, if Washington, DC, were to restrict travel into the city in early November or cancel all public gatherings, we would be required to cancel or re-schedule Boot Camp at the last minute.
For any questions at any time, please contact Ashley A. Westby, Program Manager, or Jeffrey A. Mittman, Executive Director.
