NAMSS 2020 Education Summit

Earlier this week, we shared a message that NAMSS was monitoring the escalating impact of COVID-19, and planning to proceed as planned with the Education Summit, scheduled for March 19–21 in Orlando, Florida.

However, after much thoughtful deliberation and evaluation of the evolving situation, NAMSS has ultimately decided to cancel the event. In making this difficult decision, paramount is the health, safety, and welfare of our attendees, instructors, and staff. We acknowledge that the increase in facility-mandated travel restrictions, as well as growing concerns over exposure have made it impossible to ensure the execution of a successful summit experience.

We apologize for any inconvenience this cancellation may cause you. In the coming weeks, we will communicate information regarding paid registration fees, credits, and/or refunds.  

In the meantime, if you have already made travel and hotel reservations, we encourage you to contact these agencies immediately to inform them of your changed travel plans. You can reach the Hyatt Regency at 407-284-1234.

If you are scheduled to take the CPCS or CPMSM exam in the spring testing window and would like to postpone your exam due to the cancellation of the summit, we are waiving fees for transfers to the summer testing window (June 20 – July 11, 2020). If you would like to postpone your exam further than the summer testing window, we can provide a full refund for your testing fee and you can reapply for a future testing date. To take advantage of either of these options, please contact
