COVID-19 Policies

Because the safety and well-being of event attendees is of utmost importance, NAMIC is actively monitoring COVID-19 information from the most authoritative and responsible sources. We will make event-related decisions based on these organizations’ information and recommendations. All events with in-person offerings will also have virtual offerings and flexible cancellation policies to allow for adjustments in travel plans due to COVID-19.

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 in person as soon as it is safe to do so. We will provide regular updates on event status and provide ample notice to adjust travel plans.

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

Getting the Industry Back Together Safely

Life as we know it has changed, and NAMIC has adjusted the event experience to align with today’s health and safety standards.

While it remains unclear how long gathering, travel, and individual company participation restrictions will continue, NAMIC is closely monitoring information from the most authoritative federal and state entities in order to provide you the opportunity to gather for events in a manner that protects everyone’s safety and well-being.

Based on current state reopenings and other guidelines, NAMIC plans to host some hybrid events and some all-virtual events in 2021.

All events will be planned with COVID-19 safety restrictions in place, including mask requirements, social distancing, frequent sanitization, flexible food and beverage options, and outdoor functions when possible.

All hybrid events will have flexible cancellation policies, allowing for adjustments to personal plans based on COVID-19. If COVID-19 infection levels decrease enough to allow for larger gatherings, NAMIC is committed to exploring options for smaller regionally based meetings and events. Virtual registrants will have the opportunity to upgrade their registrations.

Please refer to the individual event webpages for the most up-to-date information on event status.

COVID-19-Related Measures

Because attendee safety is the top priority, the NAMIC events team has been hard at work planning events that take Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommendations and social distancing guidelines into account. Outlined below is what you can expect when you attend a NAMIC event in the coming months.
