2020 Virtual Convocation

2020 Virtual Convocation

The NRVC board has made the decision to convert 2020 Convocation to a virtual gathering rather than meeting in Spokane. We are still working out the details, but we want to assure that:

  1. The safety and well-being of our members remains a top priority.
  2. We are committed to providing high quality, professional, and inspiring programming at the 2020 Convocation--albeit, in a virtual format.
  3. We are planning a new schedule for late October with presenters, prayer, networking, and a business meeting. With the experience of over 200 participants and presenters involved in NRVC's virtual Summer Institute, we have confidence in the success of a 2020 Virtual Convocation.

Entirely new registration for 2020 Virtual Convocation

Because the format and offerings will need to be adjusted, the National Office has determined that the best course is to create an entirely new registration portal for 2020 Virtual Convocation.

For those of you who have already registered for 2020 Convocation, Maureen Cetera, Director of Finance, will provide you with a full refund within the next few weeks and will email you when the refund has been processed. You will then be provided the link to register for 2020 Virtual Convocation through the new portal.

For those who have already booked travelYou will need to cancel your reservationsIf you booked your hotel through NIX Conference Management, your reservations have been cancelled.

New 2020 Virtual Convocation registration in place soon

We hope to have our plans finalized in the next few weeks with a new registration portal in place by early September. We will notify you once the new 2020 Virtual Convocation schedule and registration is available.

Remember to mark your calendars for Convocation 2022 

Convocation 2022 will be held in Spokane at the Davenport Grand, Nov. 3-6, 2022.

In prayer and gratitude

We are grateful for your continued patience, understanding, and support as we pray together for an end to the spread of this global virus and its impact on you--our cherished members--all communities, collaborators, and those you serve. Thank you for your courage, witness, and hope.
