Duty of Care (last updated 11/30/2021)

NPMA is committed to making the health and safety of its event attendees, speakers, and staff our top priority, by ensuring you are fully equipped for a safe experience. In partnership with the venue, and based on recommendations from the CDC and national, state, and local, guidelines, we have developed this Duty of Care document. 

Our Duty of Care is a living document that will continue to evolve, incorporating innovative features that will further enhance the onsite experience and safety for everyone in attendance. Please continue to refer to this document for updated information and do not hesitate to contact the NPMA office (conferences@npma.org) if you have questions or concerns.
