2021 NPA Annual Meeting Update

As the NPA Member Education Committee began to plan for 2021, the current state of the country, member safety and comfortability had to be taken into consideration. After much deliberation, the NPA Board of Directors has made the decision to postpone the NPA 2021 Annual Meeting from its originally scheduled dates of March 21-23 to October 17-19, 2021 to allow for an in-person event at the Ponte Vedra Inn & Club in Ponte Vedra Beach, FL.

Registration rates from the March 2020 meeting will be rolled over and applied to the new October dates for those who had previously registered. Reach out to [email protected] for any questions.
