NPAA Conference Update
The NPAA will be complying with the Alberta government mandate to avoid all gatherings of more than 250 people, especially those including individuals with critical infrastructure responsibilities. Since the NPAA 2020 conference falls within this category, our conference committee is working with the Sutton Place Hotel to reschedule the conference for the fall. We are also consulting with our ticket sales vendor to determine the best process for ticket refunds. Registrants will be contacted personally with further details.
As per our bylaws, we are required to hold our Annual General Meeting this spring. The Board will be replacing the in-person meeting with a virtual meeting to ensure our members are informed of the work of the association in 2019-2020.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to be added to the list for the AGM.
