NASMM 2022 is an inclusive opportunity for all Specialty & Senior Move Managers® to engage in exceptional learning experiences for professional development, individual productivity, and organizational success.

Do you have experience and/or expertise in any of the areas noted below, and are you willing to present a one-hour session at NASMM 2022 in Philadelphia October 20-23, 2022? Do you know one (or two) other people with whom you’d like to present? We’d love to hear from you! NASMM will review proposals from both NASMM members and professionals from outside the membership who can provide expert content in the areas highlighted below.

What we’re looking for in 2022:

While we welcome and encourage ALL education proposals for consideration, we want to share our  “wish list” for NASMM 2022. An invited group of seven diverse NASMM members highlighted these topics as areas of ongoing interest.

  • All selected presenters will be given a special code for a $250 discount on their conference registration.
