The 2021 President’s Tour will use a mix of in-person and virtual meetings. As with previous years, meetings will still be offered based on geographic locations so that physicians have an opportunity to share their thoughts and raise any region-specific issues for discussion.


The NLMA President’s Tour provides members with an opportunity to:


  • Meet their current NLMA President and Executive Director
  • Receive an update on the ongoing negotiations and other important issues
  • Identify their own questions or concerns
  • Network with colleagues


All members are encouraged to attend this annual opportunity and actively participate in the work of the NLMA.


Dates and communities are listed below, as well as the virtual meetings listed by region.
