Welcome to the NAMSS Annual Conference 2021
NAMSS ANNUAL CONFERENCE 2021
15 March, 2021
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.
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. Find out more about this vital service on the day and, when you visit their stand, you can also enter the prize draw to win a £500 donation to your college’s hardship fund.
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.
