During the last week of July 2014, the Empowered Ideas Team assisted in managing the 2014 North Carolina Foundation for Alcohol and Drug Studies (NCFADS) Summer School Conference in Wilmington, NC — with over 250 substance abuse prevention and treatment professionals from all across the region in attendance.
Event planning and marketing began as soon as the 2014 NCFADS Winter School concluded back in February. And this year’s summer school featured a keynote by Actor, Author, and Advocate, Christopher Kennedy Lawford.
In 1978, the N.C. Foundation for Alcohol and Drug Studies was chartered as a private non-profit corporation with the support and encouragement of the N.C. Department of Human Resources, the Alcoholism Professionals of North Carolina (APNC) and the Association of Drug Abuse Prevention (ADAP). The Foundation continues its professional relationship with the organization of Addiction Professionals of North Carolina (APNC) and has expanded its relationship to include other organizations within the state which share a vital interest in the continuing education of substance abuse professionals.
Each year, NCFADS hosts two conferences (“schools”), the annual NCFADS Summer School and the NCFADS Winter School. Each school is designed to serve the needs of many professional groups. Up to three types of school credit (SAC, NBCC, CEU) are included in the school cost.
The Empowered Ideas team is honored to continue planning, managing and marketing the NCFADS Summer and Winter Schools. For more information about NCFADS, please visit www.NCFADS.org
