Virtual NAMICon Announcement

NAMICon 2020

Dear NAMI community,

After thoughtful deliberation, NAMI has made the difficult decision to transition NAMICon 2020 from an in-person meeting to a virtual experience. As you are aware, risks associated with large-scale live events this year remain unknown, and we are committed to the health and safety of all our attendees, staff, presenters, sponsors and exhibitors. We also recognize that many people and organizations now face tough budget decisions, especially related to travel and professional development opportunities, that may make the trip to Atlanta less feasible.

Because of these changing circumstances, we are refunding all paid registrations for the Atlanta event. Please see details below for specific information on refunds and reservations.

While we might not be able to meet in person, we’re committed to facilitating invaluable connections with peers, and we’re excited at the opportunity to deliver NAMICon remotely. A virtual platform has the potential to connect even more people within the NAMI community to information and resources needed during this critical time.
 
Our staff is currently working through details to support the transition to a virtual NAMICon. We will share updates via NAMI’s website and social media platforms as more details become available.
Thank you for your patience and resilience as we navigate through these uncertain times together.

Sincerely,
Daniel H. Gillison, Jr.
Chief Executive Officer, NAMI
