The health and safety of NPMA members, attendees, and speakers are of utmost importance during this pandemic. We continue to monitor the COVID-19 situation and are following the guidance of the CDC and state and local health authorities. At this time, we are continuing with the planning of the NES and expect it to take place as scheduled. As this is a very fluid situation, we are not yet able to provide specifics on what health requirements or social distancing measures will be in place come late August. Your patience and understanding during this difficult time are appreciated. Stay safe and healthy!
