Conference Update: COVID-19 


 To Our NIPA Community-
After significant time, energy and evaluation, the NIPA Board of Directors has decided to postpone the 2020NAFE, which will now take place August 9-12, 2020 at the JW Marriott in Nashville. Ultimately, protecting our attendees, speakers, sponsors, exhibitors and staff is our top priority, especially in these complex and quickly changing times.
Many of us look forward to this event every year—it’s a valuable source of insight that helps to elevate the work we do and it is what brings our community together. The conference continues to be a cornerstone of NIPA’s community. Even more now, we need our community to rally around the new conference dates to ensure its success and our organization’s long-term viability. 
With this shift in timing, I know that you may have questions about next steps and how this impacts you and your organization. Our conference staff has put together answers for many of the most anticipated questions and those FAQs are shared below. If you have any other questions or concerns not covered below, please do not hesitate to reach out to us at
While we are disappointed that we won’t be gathering in Nashville next month, we are grateful for your continued support of the 2020NAFE, the NIPA community and our WP&BC partners. This event simply would not happen without you, and we look forward to thanking you in person in August! Until then, we hope that you and your loved ones stay healthy and well.
