On behalf of the NAPIM Board of Directors and Staff, the decision has been made to cancel NAPIM’s Spring Convention scheduled for April 17-20 in Phoenix, Arizona due to concerns related to coronavirus (COVID-19).
This was not an easy decision for us to make. However, it is our obligation to do what is in the best interests of all our attendees and event sponsors. As we have all been following the news surrounding coronavirus, it is changing hourly with local and state governments issuing safety declarations, airlines cancelling flights, and large events such as conferences and sporting events being cancelled. Some attendees have already informed us that their companies have stopped all employee travel and that they would not be sending anyone to the NAPIM Spring Convention.
This is an unprecedented situation for our organization, but we wanted to inform you as soon as a decision was made.
