NPA Annual Meeting


NPA has been closely monitoring the news about COVID-19 (Coronavirus) and carefully considering the impact for NPA. The health and safety of NPA’s membership and Annual Meeting attendees is of the utmost importance, so the Board of Directors has decided to postpone the NPA Annual Meeting (originally scheduled for March 15-17, 2020). NPA will look to identify a new date for the NPA Annual Meeting as soon as possible.
