We appreciate your support of this schedule and, and per NIA's Meetings I-3, Member Entertainment/Meeting Policy, we ask that there be no independent or company-planned entertainment or meetings during scheduled NIA Convention sessions, programs, or events. Additionally, we ask that all Convention attendees adhere to the 6:1 ratio for entertaining on Friday's open evening. (One paid Convention attendee may entertain 6 other paid Convention registrants.)
