NAMSS ANNUAL CONFERENCE 2021

15 March, 2021
Online only

The NAMSS Exec will definitely miss the opportunity of seeing everyone and bringing members together to network and share best practice but in the current climate, we have opted to do the next best thing!

Our first ever online Conference is packed with a fabulous line up of Key Notes, Workshops, Round-table Discussions, an inter-active Exhibition Space (details of the eSafe free prize draw is below but look out for other special offers and promotions available in the Expo section) and a networking facility providing you with the option of sharing virtual business cards with delegates, presenters and exhibitors of your choice. For each activity you attend, you will receive all presentations, recordings and discussion transcripts.

Due to the wide-ranging areas of responsibility covered by NAMSS' members, the conference is not limited to those who work in student services. Our speakers, workshops and round-table discussions will also be of interest to colleagues working in the curriculum and quality functions too.

As this is so new to us all, we have produced some guidance for delegates to help you navigate your way around the screen to access your key note, workshop and activity choices. You can access the step-by-step guides for delegates by clicking the links ‘How to register and pay for Conference’ here and ‘How to navigate around our virtual conference platform’ here.

We are also available in the NAMSS booth to help with any queries you have.

Hope you have a great conference

College Hardship Fund - Free Prize Draw sponsored by eSafe

Leading the way in digital monitoring, eSafe is focused on detecting the early warning signs of safeguarding risks and can provide colleges with around one third of their total safeguarding intelligence.

Entries to be submitted by 3pm on the day and the six winners will be announced at the end of the conference.

Ticket costs:

As the event is taking place online, the NAMSS Executive Board have been able to reduce the cost of attending for the full day for NAMSS member colleges to £99 per person.

The cost for delegates who are not affiliated to NAMSS is £150 for the day.

You can choose to pay by invoice using a purchase order number, or make an online payment. Invoices and payment receipts will be automatically generated and emailed to you, making the event booking as stress-free and seamless as possible.
