Conference Update
March 30, 2020

First of all, we hope that all are doing well during this difficult time in our Country. Our prayers go out to all that are facing issues that we are not accustom to.

The NRVMA Board would like to update our loyal members and to all who are planning to attend our Annual Conference in Asheville, North Carolina, September 29-October 1, at the Crowne Plaza Hotel. There is a lot of uncertainty about the next few months as it relates to our conference. We are making plans to have the Conference as scheduled on these dates. The Board has discussed the situation and are in agreement.

We will evaluate the situation around the first of June and update the website as to any changes that may have transpired. In the meantime, please check the website for information regarding Conference registration, hotel registration and award nominations.

We look forward to seeing you in Asheville in September.
