  • Powerful Opening and Closing General sessions that leverage technology, engagement and thought-provoking concepts.
  • Timely learning sessions for Members to come together to learn and share practices.
  • A Solutions Lab where Members can dive deeper into various solutions areas and interact with NISC subject matter experts.
  • Exciting keynote by Capt. Chesley “Sully” Sullenberger, a safety and leadership expert, international speaker and #1 New York Times best-selling author best known for serving as Captain on an emergency flight landing that’s been called the “Miracle on the Hudson.”

THRIVE ’20 will be held in place of this year’s canceled Member Information Conference (MIC), NISC’s annual Member learning event. The MIC will return in 2021, with plans to host the event in the heart of downtown Louisville, Ky.

“In a time of economic hardship and uncertainty for many people across the country, THRIVE ’20 will be provided free to Members and guests,” said NISC President and CEO Dan Wilbanks. “Unforeseen circumstances this year may have overturned everyone’s plans, but we will emerge from this stronger and more connected to each other than ever before.”
