It's NASMD's 60th Birthday, Make Plans to Celebrate!


I hope this finds all of you well and that you're wrapping up (pun intended) a great holiday season! I am so excited to share with you that the Board recently held its convention planning meeting. We traveled to the lovely JW Marriott Starr Pass Resort in Tucson, AZ, our host hotel for the 2022 NASMD Convention. The desert is beautiful, and the lazy river was lazy! Best of all, the fire pits overlooking the valley and nightly tequila toasts were as wonderful as ever.

Even though we enjoyed the good food and company, we were also working hard on another amazing lineup of educational sessions for the 2022 convention. This will be a special year as NASMD celebrates its 60th anniversary. We hope every member makes plans to attend the convention and experience great sessions, enjoy networking opportunities and maybe even get a little down time. Meet-to-Eat and the always enjoyable golf and bocce ball tournaments are all on the agenda!

We'll be sending out the hotel link and reservation email very soon, so look for it in early January. The NASMD Convention will be the first industry gathering for 2022. Register now and join us in Tucson, March 30 - April 2, 2022, for our 60th anniversary convention and celebration!

I'm proud that NASMD can lead the industry again in boldly tackling the coming year with enthusiasm and mutual support. Music is the glue that holds us together, let's make sure we're all successful!

I wish you happy holidays and may the New Year bring much prosperity to us all!

Musically Yours,

Whitney Grisaffi
