A Message from the NAMSS Conference Chair -- Susan DuBois, CPMSM, CPCS

You probably noticed that registration for the 38th Annual NAMSS Conference is open.  I hope you are planning to join me and hundreds of your friends and colleagues in New Orleans October 4-8! 

The Conference Committee, along with many others, have been planning what promises to be one of the best Annual Conferences in NAMSS’ history.  We have selected a wide variety of topics and presenters, some old friends and some new friends, that we can’t wait to hear from.  

In addition to the Annual Conference, we will be offering several pre-conference sessions on Saturday and Sunday, October 4 and 5, including Credentialing 101; CPCS and CPMSM Prep Courses and Becoming Your Own Advocate (held only on Sunday).  We’ve programmed many networking opportunities including a Roundtable Breakfast Networking Session; Becoming a Volunteer: An Introduction to Volunteering with NAMSS; and the Regional Roundtable Breakfast Session, formerly known as the Regional Luncheon Roundtable.   

There is no additional fee to attend any of these events, whereas in the past, you had to purchase a ticket to attend.  The Hilton New Orleans Riverside is a large beautiful hotel within walking distance of French Quarter, incredible restaurants, shopping, and just about anything else you might want to experience in New Orleans.  Many more details about the conference and online registration are available at NAMSS.org.  

Please share your favorite NAMSS Conference memories, the things you are looking forward to doing while in New Orleans and recommendations for your colleagues regarding places to eat and things to do while in New Orleans.  I’m excited for this year’s Annual Conference and hope to see you in October.   

Best wishes!  Susan
