As we all know, the COVID-19 pandemic has hit the nation hard. Our NHCA membership has certainly been no less affected.  Given the financial hardships that some are experiencing, and the challenges of holding virtual fundraising activities, the NHCA Scholarship Foundation has decided to suspend fundraising activities for the 2021 virtual annual NHCA conference.

Even though we won’t be holding the 50/50 split or any of our other fun fundraising activities, we will always welcome any monetary contribution you may care to make.  Click Here for more information and to donate.
