Sep 20 - 23, 2020 | Boston, Mass.

Agenda Overview

NAMIC is following coronavirus updates to address the safety and well-being of its event attendees. This includes actively monitoring the most authoritative and responsible sources, such as the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the Food and Drug Administration, the World Health Organization, and other reputable sources. NAMIC is committed to continuing awareness and communication of current information from reliable sources in addressing developments related to events and travel related to the virus.

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has recommended cancelling all events consisting of 50 or more people for eight weeks, so we will not be hosting any NAMIC event scheduled March through May.
