As we have stated in each of our previous communications, the safety of our members, exhibitors, and guests at the NGAMS Conference is paramount. Further, the first mission of the Mississippi National Guard is to support and defend our state and nation. In keeping with those tenets and due to the increased threat of COVID-19, the governor’s recent orders, and the active role the Mississippi National Guard in the governor’s COVID-19 task force, we have made the incredibly difficult decision to cancel the 2020 NGAMS Conference.
We have twice attempted to delay the conference to a later date. However with the school year approaching and the other factors listed above it is not feasible to make another attempt this year.
Here is how the cancellations will work for those that have already registered and reserved rooms.
The hotels have stated they will automatically cancel all reservations today. You should see the refund to your credit card within 7-10 business days.
We are beginning the process of refunding all registrations. Please be aware it could take 14-30 days for refunds to process through PayPal. However it is normally within 14 days. Again, this is a PayPal policy.
If you have any questions please contact Greg Taylor at firstname.lastname@example.org or 662-501-0260.
Please be aware that the virtual NGAUS Conference will still take place on August 28-29, 2020. NGAMS will be covering the registration fees for the first 300 members from Mississippi that register. You may register online at NGAUS Conference Registration
We also look forward to hosting everyone May 14-16, 2021 at the new Flowood Hotel and Conference Center.
Finally, in the coming days we will be sending out additional information to cover anything we may have missed. However, for planning we wanted to go ahead get this email out to everyone.
As always thank you for your support of the men, women, families, and communities of the Mississippi National Guard.
