Last updated 9/18/2020: As a result of our ongoing dialogue with local and national health authorities, we have made the difficult decision to cancel the NACS North American CEO Strategic Issues Summit for 2020. We are keenly aware of the high-quality networking and forward-looking thought leadership you’ve come to expect from NACS—and we are absolutely committed to delivering that value as we face new and ongoing circumstances imposed by COVID-19. Please see the updated 2021 event information below, and mark your calendar accordingly! For those who have paid fees for 2020, we will automatically transfer them to the 2021 summit or refund them in full if desired. Please coordinate refund requests with Allison Dean, CMP, at +1 703.518.4250 or
