The Board would like to take this opportunity to thank members for their patience and trust with regard to the annual conference. At this time, COVID-19 is at the forefront of our thoughts as we all do our best to keep our members, ourselves, and all of our families healthy and safe by obeying the various stay at home orders in effect in our various states. The Board, working through our administrator CMAC, has been working diligently over the past several weeks to seek a resolution with the conference hotel to cancel the conference without incurring a hefty cancellation fee. The NAJIT annual conference has many moving pieces to it which make it a wonderful first class experience as we saw at our 40th Annual Conference in Nashville. We are now in a position where we can announce that our Annual Conference in Ft. Lauderdale is officially cancelled. Had the Board rushed to make this announcement to members or place it on the website before finalizing the necessary negotiations with the hotel, NAJIT could have incurred a fee in the tens of thousands of dollars. As a Board we had to find a delicate balance between keeping members apprised of the situation and being responsible stewards of the Association’s funds. Registration was suspended once the Board realized the conference would not be proceeding as planned.Thus far, anyone who requested a refund was issued a full refund with NAJIT assuming the transaction fees incurred, and not charging the customary $35 cancellation fee. For those who have not yet received a refund, NAJIT HQ will be contacting you in the coming days. The annual meeting will still be held, albeit virtually, so that we can have election results announced and take care of NAJIT business. We will provide more details as they become available. The Board will continue to keep members informed of future online programs that may be offered.
