2020 NCPMI Annual Conference. 

Your wellbeing as members, volunteers and partners of NCPMI is important to us.  We understand that every organization is going through some transition due to this unprecedented health crisis.  We are currently planning to still move forward with the NCPMI Annual Conference for August 17th with the expectation that this health crisis will be circumvented and organizations will be going back to normalcy. We are keeping informed of this issue daily to monitor and mitigate any risks associated with the conference.  

We request your patience as we update the NCPMI Annual Conference website. Please watch this space and your email for details regarding registration. We are working to update the website to keep you informed and up to date.

Thank you for your support and understanding as we plan during this time of uncertainty.
