Dear NAMTA Members and Followers,

Our operations are currently being moved to Seattle from Ohio. During this rather untimely transition, we appreciate your graciousness.

Our membership requests are currently backlogged, but will be processed once we return from Dallas. If you are purchasing a ticket for Dallas and desire the member rate, we still have the ability to verify existing and new memberships.

All ad requests will also be addressed post-conference.

Store order fulfillment will also be delayed as we set up our new store. We anticipate our store re-opening in December. If you have submitted an order in the past two weeks, that you need right away, please contact us for a refund. If you are able to wait until December, we would be happy to send your order at that time. We understand that this is a less than ideal situation and apologize for the inconvenience.

And if you are still interested in coming to Dallas, but have not yet purchased your ticket -- we are offering a special discount. 3 tickets for the price of 2! This is a $330 savings! To take advantage of this discount please go to:
