Fall 2020 NAMD Conference

November 9 – 11, 2020

Washington Hilton | Washington, DC


Dear NAMD Community,

This year will mark our 10th annual conference and we look forward to celebrating this milestone with you in Washington D.C. this fall. Through the years, with your support, we have grown the National Association of Medicaid Directors annual conference into one of the largest Medicaid conferences of the year.

As states across the country begin the process of reopening and many of you resume aspects of your daily routine that are familiar, we are reaching out to provide you with an update on the Fall 2020 NAMD Conference. NAMD believes in the power of gathering the Medicaid community to educate, network and strengthen the role of Medicaid in our healthcare system.

We also realize the incredible challenges COVID-19 has presented us all with. NAMD is proceeding with the in-person conference on November 9-11 in Washington DC, however, the impact of COVID-19 presents us with challenges around gathering in the same manner we have done for the past ten years. Therefore, we are also developing a robust virtual conference platform that will deliver the same great content and networking opportunities available at the in-person conference.

In-person Conference

NAMD is following guidance from the CDC and Washington DC health officials on recommendations and requirements for large gatherings. We will provide participants in Washington DC with an in-person experience guided by protocols to ensure the health and safety of all attendees. In addition, we are limiting the number of attendees at the in-person conference to allow for proper social distancing throughout the event space. Registration for the in-person conference is now open for the following groups:

  • State Government
  • Federal Government
  • Non-profit – registrations limited; available on a first-come, first-serve basis.
  • NAMD Alumni – registrations limited; available on a first-come, first-serve basis.
  • Corporate Sponsors – registrations limited; you will need a registration code. Details have been shared with your corporate sponsor point of contact.

Virtual Conference

The virtual conference will offer participants a vital and meaningful conference experience that meets the expectations and standards set by the in-person conference. You will be able to participate in live sessions and engage in Q&A with speakers and panelists. The NAMD virtual conference will also feature a 3D Exhibit Hall where you can engage with sponsors in real time. Virtual participants will also have the opportunity to network with colleagues and fellow attendees in virtual networking rooms.

Registration for the virtual conference is now open for all registration levels. To register to participate in the virtual conference, please click here.

In these fluid times, it is clear that each day is different. We appreciate your support and continued interest in the Fall 2020 NAMD Conference. The Fall Conference will remain the standard bearer, both in terms of content and unique opportunities for networking and building relationships within the Medicaid industry. This year those ideals will be more relevant than ever before.
