National Minority Quality Forum’s 2020 Annual Leadership Summit is Postponed Until Further Notice

The COVID-19 situation is ever-changing, and the National Minority Quality Forum is taking the necessary precautionary measures to help ensure the safety of our community. Accordingly, the 2020 Annual Summit will be postponed until a later date, which has not yet been set. If you have already registered for the Summit in April, your registration will transfer to the new date. If you cannot attend the rescheduled event, we will gladly provide a refund. Thank you all for your continued support. We will be sending updates regarding the status of the rescheduled 2020 Summit once we know more details about when it will be safe to assemble. We would like to encourage everyone to follow guidance from the CDC regarding how to protect yourself and what to do if you think you are sick. For questions regarding the Summit, please contact Brandon Garrett at or Keiko Purnell at
