NASIG 35th Annual Conference Cancelled

Dear NASIG Community,

The NASIG Executive Board has made the difficult decision to cancel the 35th Annual NASIG Conference due to the COVID-19 outbreak. The possible risks to the health and safety of our members, as well as the current environment of travel restrictions, have made it impossible to proceed with the meeting as scheduled.

NASIG will plan to offer an online conference this summer. The board is still exploring the best format for this event, and we will be in contact with our speakers, sponsors, and the broader membership in the coming weeks with more information.

For those who have already registered for the conference, you will hear from us soon regarding refunds. We will plan to honor all of this year’s NASIG award winners at the 36th Annual Conference to be held May 17-20, 2021 in Madison, WI.

We’re also pleased to announce that we will have a chance to visit the Davenport Grand Hotel in Spokane, WA, for our 2024 conference. Rescheduling with the Davenport has allowed us to cancel this year’s conference without financial penalty, and we greatly appreciate their flexibility.

Thank you for your membership and understanding during these challenging times. If you have questions or concerns, please reach out to the board at info@nasig.org.

Best,

Kristen Wilson
NASIG President

NASIG Conference Update – COVID-19 Statement

Dear NASIG Community,

The NASIG Board met on Tuesday to discuss plans for the annual conference in light of the worsening coronavirus crisis. Any major changes to the event will be complex and potentially costly, so we need to practice due diligence as we figure out how best to handle the situation. Luckily, the conference is still more than two months away, which gives us time to evaluate our options in a calm and thoughtful manner. I regret that we can’t provide a more definite decision at this time, but please know that we are doing all we can to address the situation in a way that will be the most beneficial to our membership.

One thing that the Board has unanimously agreed on is our desire not to see the work that’s already gone into this year’s conference wasted. So regardless of what happens with the face-to-face meeting, we will plan to offer an online option. The exact details of the online meeting are still being determined, but we will share more information as soon as it’s known.

Thank you for your membership and understanding during these challenging times. If you have questions or concerns, please reach out to the board at info@nasig.org.

Best regards,

Kristen Wilson on behalf of the NASIG Executive Board
