Committee Members

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.

  • CEO Roundtables | March 22-24, 2020
  • Personal Lines Seminar | April 20-22, 2020
  • Directors’ Boot Camp | May 4-6, 2020
  • Farm Mutual Forum | May 19-20, 2020

All registrants will be contacted regarding options for refund and/or registration credits. Sponsors will be contacted by the sponsorship development team.

While it is unclear how long company travel restrictions will last, social distancing will be practiced, and other effects on event attendance will continue in response to this outbreak, our hope is to be able to provide you with the opportunity to gather together again later this year when it’s safer to do so.

Please refer to event registration confirmations and event registration pages for our cancellation policy if you decide for personal reasons to cancel attendance at any NAMIC event. If you are not able to join us, you will be able to access all presentations virtually. We appreciate your understanding.

NAMIC values member involvement so this event, like all events offered by NAMIC, has been developed with member input from dedicated volunteers.
