Online on the Bayou


A letter from the NAPAMA President, December 14. 2020

Dear Colleagues,

Earlier this year, with optimism and eyes wide open, we began planning the 2021 Agents and Managers Retreat, seizing on the need to secure a hotel in New Orleans and locking in a date with colleague organizations for May 15-18.  When we started this back in June, there was great hope that a vaccine and mitigation efforts regarding this pandemic could move forward that would make the trip to The Big Easy possible.

Although there are many encouraging signs that some form of normal is on the horizon, the timing for us remains precarious at best.  Still in play is the ability to travel both from an economic and safety standpoint. We stated from the beginning that these issues would guide us through the decision-making and planning process.

Therefore, knowing what we know today, the NAPAMA Board has decided to move our Retreat out of New Orleans and into the virtual realm. We’re already working on ideas to make this convening unique and keep within our goals the ability to network, learn more about each other, exchange vibrant and creative ideas and strategies, and work together as one large team.

We anticipate consolidating the schedule to two days: Monday and Tuesday, May 17 and 18, keeping North American times zones in mind. As always, we will keep you posted through our website, Facebook pages, webinars, and newsletters. We welcome your ideas now and in the coming weeks so that our team can design something extra-special, productive, and exciting.

Thank you for your continued support of NAPAMA and our industry.

Be safe. Be well.

Gail Boyd, President
