NAMIC has made the decision to move all in-person events for remainder of 2020 to a virtual setting, including the Annual Convention in Boston scheduled for September where we had planned to celebrate NAMIC’s 125th Anniversary. The health and well-being of NAMIC members and staff are the most important factors in considering our options and hosting large event gatherings in these times is just not feasible.
Those who have already registered for an event will receive a separate communication with the details of transferring to a virtual event. All members will soon receive information about exciting new ways to experience what they have come to expect from NAMIC events.
The power of the mutual industry can move mountains. We help people in their times of greatest need, giving them the assurance that when things get rough, someone will be there. We’ve harnessed that power into The Marketplace for Mutuals, a showcase of companies and professionals who are dedicated to the success of the mutual industry. As the social hub of the Annual Convention, the Marketplace offers attendees the opportunity to connect with colleagues during meals, enjoy lively receptions, enter for chances to win prizes, and participate in an efficient Marketplace Solution Tour. And in a spectacular example of the change the NAMIC membership can make, the Marketplace also hosts the inspiring St. Baldrick’s Head Shaving Fundraiser, which continues to be a record-breaking event for the St. Baldrick’s organization.
Check back here throughout the year to begin planning your Marketplace experience.
