SAVE THE DATE – April 27-29 & May 4-6, 2021 – VIRTUAL Event
Join us for the NAFTZ Spring Seminar – held Virtually in 2021 and earn up to 12 CCS/CES credits! After actively monitoring the situation and working with our partners, and based on surveying Spring Seminar attendees, we understand travel restrictions are still in place and the preferred means forward is a virtual event. Working with the NAFTZ Executive board, program committee and COVID-Response team we are adjusting the program to virtual format (Rate reduced by almost 50% compared to the in-person event rate held in the past) with sessions at the seminar include speeches, panel discussions, and thought-provoking Q&A sessions with government officials and industry experts.
