Sep 21 - 23, 2020 | Virtual

Full Agenda

            

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.

Monday, September 21 (All times listed are in Eastern Standard Time)
7:00 a.m. – 7:00 p.m.
