The True Test of NAMI Leadership
Winter 2004 Leadership Conference
January 16-18, 2004
Washington, D.C.

Welcome, in here you will find information about the 3 Annual NAMI Winter Leadership Conference, such as titles of each of the sessions held, and documents that were distributed.  During this conference, NAMI’s 2004-2005 Strategic Plan was presented to all leaders who attended. This plan was developed piece by piece based on extensive discussion with NAMI leaders and members around the country. The plan represents a shared vision of priority need in the communities and priority directions for the organization. This conference provided the first opportunity for more that 250 leaders from all parts of the United States to take the first steps toward implementing a vision, and the opportunity to network and draw support from other leaders.
