The Annual NAMIC Conference will be held in New York City from September 29-30, 2015 at the New York Marriott Marquis. The theme of this year's conference is: Diversity OTT: Outreach Talent and Tenacity. We are counting on our members in the tri-state area and friends/supporters to assist us by volunteering prior to and during the conference.


Traditionally, conference volunteers have been those who are unable to get company support to attend, but anyone who has the interest and time to commit, is invited to volunteer.
