34th Annual NAMIC Conference

October 6-9, 2020


Thank you to our entire NAMIC family for making last week’s 34th Annual NAMIC Conference a rousing success! Without a doubt, our theme, “Building a Legacy: The Future is Now,” delivered, reminding us all of the important work we must do today to continuing build a legacy for future generations. This year’s conference will go down in the NAMIC archives as one of the most dynamic conferences in our 40-year history.

Registration was up 40 percent over last year in no small part to the panelists who shared pearls of wisdom and actionable strategies to move careers, companies, and communities forward. Attendees had the opportunity to tune into 15 hours of inspiring educational sessions, participate in dynamic one-on-one and group networking events, and listen to our first-ever Town Hall meeting on race and relevancy. Throughout the four days, we celebrated legacy leaders and honored the next generation of legacy makers in the cable and communications industry.

And a special shout-out to our conference sponsors and our annual conference honorary co-chairs, Bob Bakish and Princell Hair! We are forever grateful for your continued support of NAMIC and our 40th anniversary conference.
