8/21/2020

To members of our naturopathic community,

Thank you for your patience and support of CNPA during this challenging time! Many of you have inquired about the status of our postponed 2020 conference—expected November 13 and 14th—and we finally have some answers for you. 

Now that the Mohegan Sun is fully operational, we were able to discuss details with their planning staff, and given projections from our government and limitations at our venue, it does not seem likely that the November “rain date” for our conference is possible. 

The Conference Planning Committee and I agree that the safety and health of our community far outweigh the risks associated with an in-person event at this time, and have decided to postpone the 2020 conference until Fall of 2021. 

Rescheduling our highly anticipated event will enable us to provide the experience that our community and Association partners deserve, in a safe environment. Although we are disappointed that we will not be seeing you in person this year, we are very excited to host you next Fall, and will communicate more information and our specific dates as they become available. While we are unable to provide refunds for registration fees at this time, your registration will automatically be applied to the rescheduled event, and we will keep event information up to date on our website.

As always, thank you for all that you do for our community, especially during this time of need. We look forward to seeing you soon, and send you our best wishes for your health and safety.


Sincerely,

Lindsey Wells, ND

CNPA President
