We encourage both members and nonmembers to attend the convention! NAMI is the nation’s largest and most influential grassroots advocacy group working on behalf of individuals with lived experience and caregivers. Whether or not you are a member of NAMI, you will benefit from the information offered at the convention, as well as a chance to network with colleagues.

All registration fees are non-refundable.

What do I need to attend the virtual NAMICon?
To attend the virtual NAMICon, you need a good internet connection, your device or computer, and a valid registration login. You will receive login details a few days prior to the convention.

Can I get a Certificate of Attendance?
Yes, we can provide a certificate of attendance at the end of the convention. The certificate is a formal document given to individuals who attended the convention and can serve as proof of attendance or participation. It can also be useful for obtaining continuing education credits from other professional associations.

Can I earn Continuing Education (CE) Credits?
Continuing education is a great way to stay at the top of your field and keep your license current. Social workers and registered nurses can earn CE credits by attending sessions at NAMICon.

NAMI is a certified provider through the Minnesota Board of Social Work and the California Board of Registered Nursing. Please check with your specific agency to verify that they accept credits from these sources, the Minnesota Board of Social Work and the California Board of Registered Nursing.

Up to 15.375 CEUs are available for social workers and up to 21.75 CEUs are available for registered nurses at this year’s virtual NAMICon. If you are interested in applying for CEUs, please make sure to complete the “Continuing Education” section of the form when you register for NAMICon. More details will be sent via email as we get closer to the convention.

Is there a charge for the Continuing Education (CE) Credits or Certificates of Attendance?
No, we are not charging for continuing education units (CEU), continuing education (CE) credits or the Certificate of Attendance.

How does the book giveaway work?
Anyone registering for NAMICon is automatically entered into the drawing for a chance to receive a free copy of Tuesday’s Plenary speaker Michelle William’s book, Checking In: How Getting Real about Depression Saved My Life — and Can Save Yours. After NAMICon 2021 is over, a select number of names will be randomly drawn from the list of convention registrants. The books will then be shipped to mailing addresses included on attendee registration forms.
