NAPP Moves the 2020 Annual Meeting and Conference (AMC) to Virtual

Out of an abundance of caution, NAPP has chosen to convert our 2020 AMC from an in-person event to a virtual meeting format. We are working with our chosen Chicago venues to reschedule the in-person event for next year.

If you were registered for the in-person event, your credit card charge has been refunded. If you paid by check, we will be refunding you via check. 

In regards to your hotel reservation, the Club Quarters Hotel Chicago is cancelling the reservations and refunding any deposits back to the original credit card. If you made your reservation at another hotel or rented an Air B&B or otherwise, please remember to cancel your hotel room.

If you booked an airline ticket, please contact your airline directly regarding a refund.

We are working out the details for the annual candidate nominations and election. Please stay tuned for further details.

The details of the virtual program are still being decided and should be announced soon. We will open registration for the virtual meeting once we have the program in place. For the moment, please keep Monday July 20 and Tuesday July 21 free if you wish to participate in the virtual program.

As always, please contact us with any questions or concerns.

Thank you for your continued support of NAPP.

Stay safe. Be well.
