Pre-Conference Workshop Minimums
NAI is happy to offer our conference attendees the opportunity to further their professional development by attending 1 or 2 day pre-conference workshops. These workshops are a great way to add or increase your skill sets through smaller group settings with instructors who are well-versed in their field. In order to meet the meeting space criteria, workshops are subject to cancellation if they do not meet the minimum amount of registrations. If this should happen pre-conference fees will be credited back to the attendees form of payment or you may switch to a workshop that is available.
