2021 Conference

The show will go on!
Mark your calendars for the May 10-13, 2021
NACCDO-PAMN Annual Conference

Given the still challenging health and safety circumstances due to COVID-19 and the number of travel bans in effect for the majority of our organizations, the governing boards of the National Association of Cancer Center Development Officers (NACCDO) and the Public Affairs & Marketing Network (PAMN) have, after careful deliberation, jointly determined that a fully virtual program is the best method of operation for the protection and well-being of our members and the communities they serve.

The virtual program will celebrate 30 years of the NACCDO-PAMN partnership and will feature an exciting line up of sessions and specialized breakout opportunities with colleagues and national experts addressing pertinent innovative strategies unique to cancer centers in the areas of development, public relations, media relations, digital communications and marketing.

If you are currently registered to participate in person, your details will be automatically updated to reflect virtual participation.

Thank you to conference host Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center for the time and energy that has been put in to making this conference a content rich experience for all, despite the fact that it will look a little different this year!

For more information, please visit the dedicated conference website. It will be updated regularly and there is an FAQ page that will be updated as needed.

For questions, please contact conference manager Leslie Dietz at leslie@dfievents.com.
