NIA Cancels Annual Convention to Protect the Health and Safety of Members

For the safety of our members, the NIA Executive Committee has canceled the NIA Annual Convention due to coronavirus (COVID-19) overwhelming concerns. Thank you for your patience as we navigated and negotiated with the hotel. NIA will be issuing full registration and golf tournament refunds to all registrants over the next few weeks. You do not need to contact us to receive your refund.

For some good news, we were notified that hotel reservations have been automatically canceled for NIA Convention attendees who booked their rooms within NIA’s discounted room block at the JW Marriott Scottsdale Camelback Inn Resort & Spa. The hotel has emailed a notification of the cancellation. If you have any doubt regarding your reservation, please contact the hotel directly at 1-800-582-2169 or online by clicking here.

The Silent Auction has been postponed to the 2021 Convention in Hawaii and the NIA staff will be reaching out to the donors. The charities will remain the same in 2021. NIA will also be reaching out to all 2020 Convention sponsors on an individual basis.

Again, thank you for your patience as we worked diligently with the hotel to protect the health and safety of our members and their membership dollars from devastating penalties. Fortunately, we were successful with these efforts. We look forward to seeing you at the NIA Fall Summit and at the 2021 Convention in Hawaii.

Should you have any questions, please contact the NIA staff for assistance. For your health and safety, we will continue to post resources and safety advice on the website. Information from the CDC, WHO, and OSHA is available here:
