2020 SUMMER CONFERENCE DATES

On April 1, 2020, the NHI Board of Directors adopted a policy to move some of the programs to a digital learning experience (online programs). The board emphasized the importance of “adopting practices that are in accordance with the guidelines, regulations, and rules intended to protect the public from the COVID-19 pandemic in order to ensure the safety and well-being of all of its participants, volunteers, and employees.”

NHI is a highly innovative leadership institute with a committed core of volunteer leaders.  We support all of our enrolled students, and will do everything possible to make the digital experiences incredible!
