NDIA 2020 Regional Conference - Austin, TX

Jul 9, 2020

Dear NDIA Members and Annual Meeting Registrants,

Given the evolving environment and growing concerns regarding COVID-19, the NDIA has made the difficult decision to cancel the Regional Conference scheduled for September 8, 2020.  We have worked diligently to rebook this conference for the following year September 7-9, 2021 at the Omni Austin downtown.

Our team has been meeting and actively monitoring the situation with guidance from the World Health Organization (WHO) and Centers for Disease Control (CDC).  After carefully weighing the emerging facts as well as our duties to the NDIA, our members, other meeting attendees we believe protecting the health, safety, and well-being is paramount, and serves as the reason for our decision to cancel. 

We recognize canceling impacts many of you and your education needs.  Therefore, we are reviewing innovative online options that deliver world-class education.  In the coming weeks, please look for more information on our website, www.ndia.net for different opportunities through the remainder of 2020.

Thank you for your patience and understanding as we were considering the rapidly changing circumstances as well as the safety and wellbeing of not just our meeting participants and staff, but their families, and colleagues.
