2021 47th Annual NATAS Conference

Virtual Conference

August 3-6, 2021
If you registered for the NATAS conference, login credentials were set to all registrants on Friday and again on Monday.  If you don't see them in your inbox, check your junk folder as these types of messages often end up there. If the credentials are not there either, send an email to gjewell@aecmanagement.com and we will be happy to resend. 

What a year it has been!  We have watched as the world experiences a rollercoaster of emotions and changes in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.  Perhaps the word of the year should have been “adapt”, since that is what we have had to do at every turn.  NATAS is working to adapt, so that we can be here for you in years to come.  The comradery in our society is like no other, and we need you!

We missed you all in 2020 and want to bring us back together as soon as we can. Thank you for your input from the member survey, so that we can do that for you in a way that makes you feel safe. The Executive Council of NATAS has arrived at the decision to organize a virtual conference for 2021.  Then, it is our intent to plan again in Cleveland for 2022 with the wonderful people at Case Western Reserve University.

Remember that social distancing does not mean emotional distancing.  We are fortunate that technology allows us the opportunity to communicate without visiting.  Always keep in touch with family, friends, and your colleagues in NATAS! 

We want to see you virtually in 2021 and in-person next year!  We hope that you are all dreaming of traveling again, and we want Cleveland to be a destination for you in 2022.  To help with that, we are offering a savings offer for you to keep our society thriving.  Click here to renew or join as a member of NATAS ($60) and save significantly on next year’s conference registration.
