In lieu of 2020 NAEMA’s Fall Conference, which was cancelled due to the pandemic, NAEMA introduced an ongoing series of Virtual Presentations. Beginning on August 26, 2020, and then following on the second and fourth Wednesdays of every month thereafter, NAEMA has been bringing you the hot topics presented by industry experts that make our conferences great.
