Join Us For Our 15th Annual Conference!

Each year our board, committee, staff, and volunteers work diligently to bring an annual event that delivers an abundance of valuable tools and education to NAMA members and the community at large. Last year’s event was a significant achievement, with the highest number of attendees to date. Join us in 2019 for an event brimming with educational experiences and community spirit in a retreat-like setting among the redwoods.

Retreat Center LOCATION

1440 Multiversity is a 75-acre campus with redwood trails, copper-adorned buildings with majestic views and decks built around sky-high trunks keep you wrapped in nature during your stay. Part wellness resort, part Ted-talk auditorium, part conference center, the campus features state-of-the-art classrooms, meeting spaces, and accommodations tucked away in a lush forest between Santa Cruz and Silicon Valley. With locally sourced meals, holistic-health classes, Fitness Center, infinity-edge hot tub, and more, your stay at 1440 is designed to nurture, educate, and inspire.

Hosting our conference at a location like 1440 is new to us! We are excited to offer our attendees with an experience like no other. Because 1440 is an all-inclusive retreat setting, all meals are included in the nightly or daily fee that 1440 charges. Our conference tickets only include the conference presentations, discussions and events. 1440 offers a variety of accessible accommodations, ranging from suites to shared dorms. See their all-inclusive NAMA group accommodations options here. If you happen to call 1440 please be sure to mention you are with the NAMA conference.

Please note: If you plan to stay the night at another location, 1440 requires you to purchase a day pass of $110 that allows you on the property and includes all your meals.
