Welcome to the Conference
Dear NAPA Members:
Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, NAPA has turned the traditional in-person Midyear Meeting into our first ever Virtual Midyear Meeting . This was not an easy decision, but ultimately the public health and safety of our attendees, speakers, staff and volunteers led all parties to conclude that cancelling the face-to-face meeting was the safe and responsible action.
While we look forward to a time when we can re-convene the NAPA community face-to-face, the NAPA staff team is exercising its creativity and imagination to deliver a virtual NAPA Midyear Meeting that will exceed your expectations! The NAPA Midyear Virtual Meeting will take place July 13-15, 2020, with a lot of the same great content planned for Santa Barbara. We will be reaching out with specific communication to content leaders, volunteer committee members, and NAPA partners. We are testing – and testing again – the technology to make sure your experience will be seamless. The NAPA Midyear Virtual Meeting may provide opportunities for more members of your company and our government partners to participate in the sessions, and we welcome your registrations.
Thank you again for being a member of NAPA. We hope you and your loved ones are safe and well during these unprecedented times.
Audrey Copeland, Ph.D., P.E. President & CEO, National Asphalt Pavement Association
