NAMSS Annual Conference 2022

Our 2022 conference took place in March and was a great success!

We have left these pages on our website so that visitors can still see what a NAMSS annual conference involves and access our Keynote Speaker, Presenter and Exhibitor information. 

Details of our 2023 conference on 13 and 14 March in Liverpool will be published soon.  We very much hope to see you there.
