FIRMA Announcement

FIRMA 2020 Scottsdale National Conference, May 3-7, 2020, Cancelled

With sincere emphasis on the health of our Conference attendees and the influence of emergency declarations, FIRMA regretfully announces the cancellation of our 2020 National Training Conference.

FIRMA understands with compassion the challenges and disappointments this cancellation decision brings. For all registered attendees, speakers, and sponsors, FIRMA is contacting you directly, along with a FAQ fact-sheet with answers to many resulting issues and expectations.

Over the next weeks, FIRMA will work diligently with all impacted conference parties to meet your cancellation needs and to resolve any issues of concern.

In the coming weeks and months, please look for major announcements from FIRMA about new non-travel training opportunities as well as to additions to the already-scheduled FIRMA fall regional Seminars in Cleveland, Chicago, Houston, and New York.

FIRMA’s National Training Conference is always the highlight of our year. Our cancellation this year is significant in so many ways – not the least of which is the missed opportunity for us to learn from new experts, see friends, establish new relationships, and to reconnect with and re-invigorate our industry. We look so forward to re-establishing these foundations next year in New Orleans, March 21-25, 2021, at the Hilton New Orleans Riverside.

We offer our deepest thanks to all who worked so tirelessly and professionally to set and prepare this stage!

To all in our industry and within our extraordinary FIRMA association, please take good care.

For any questions or concerns, please contact Hale Mast, FIRMA Executive Director, 803-547-8964 /
