Thank you for your patience as the NSGC Board of Directors, Annual Conference Program Planning Committee and others throughout our society monitored the latest surge in the COVID-19 pandemic and worked through the logistics of how to move forward with the NSGC 40th Annual Conference.

As always, our priority is your safety and well-being. Based on the recent surge in cases, current registration trends by our attendees, and the feedback from many of you, we are shifting our format and offering a fully virtual conference experience again this year.

This virtual format will allow you to:

  • Access all conference sessions and experience unparalleled educational opportunities without the risk of travel;
  • Network virtually with our engaged group of genetic counselors;
  • Hear from our speakers and panelists who will share their thought leadership and best practices; and
  • Experience virtual product demos, vendor-sponsored sessions, and hear timely updates and information from our supportive community of industry sponsors and exhibitors. 

We did not make this decision lightly, as it has significant implications for our organization on a number of levels. We recognize that making this announcement now may result in frustration, disappointment and/or logistical challenges. We are also disappointed to be back in this place, and with the decisions that we are all having to make personally and professionally. However, we believe this decision is in the best interest of everyone involved with the Annual Conference - our attendees, speakers, sponsors, exhibitors, NSGC staff, and their families.
