About The FALL EVENTS

“Conversations at the NAMT Conference were so easy and fun. I never felt on the sidelines. Everyone was welcoming and eager to share. The NAMT staff was very interested in engaging in dialogue. I walked away with a list of great ideas to implement and mostly appreciate knowing that there are many others out there going through similar circumstances.”

– Aaron Young, The Fulton Theatre
