NATOA COVID-19 Update

NATOA
The health and safety of our attendees is our top priority. In light of the growing concerns regarding COVID-19, we have made the difficult decision to postpone the 7th Annual NATOA Indigenous Trust and Investment Conference which will now take place on September 28 & 29, 2020 in Calgary, Alberta at the Sheraton Suites Calgary Eau Claire. The Annual General Meeting will be on September 27, 2020 at 2 pm.
This was not an easy decision to make, as we are aware of the amount of time, preparation, and anticipation that delegates, speakers, sponsors, and exhibitors have dedicated to the conference. We acknowledge that all participants have made time in their schedules as well as travel and accommodation plans for the conference, and we remain committed to creating a similarly high-quality experience for the event in September.
We sincerely appreciate your interest in the 7th Annual NATOA Indigenous Trust and Investment Conference. Conference passes, trade show booths and sponsorships will be carried forward to September 28 & 29, 2020.
