NORM reimagines 2020 Conference

We want you to know that our highest priority is the safety of our members and any attendees of our conference. Having said that, NORM has decided that our 2020 NORM Conference scheduled for September 24-26 in Austin, TX will become a hybrid conference offering either a virtual or in-person experience.

We want to fulfill our promise to attendees while respecting your comfort level with traveling during these uncertain times. Our goal with this approach is to realize our mission of continuing to be a forum to promote and support education, expertise and advocacy for rheumatology practices and their patients.

In the coming weeks, we will have more details for you and your colleagues to help you make your decision about how to join us this fall. For any questions in the meantime, email info.

Take a listen to the message from our NORM President Jay Salliotte about the change.

We look forward to seeing you, virtually or in-person, in September!

  • As a speaker at the first ad hoc meeting of rheumatology practice managers gathered in a single small room at its infancy a decade ago, I’m amazed to see how NORM has blossomed into a high energy organization of depth and professional meetings with parallel break-out symposia between plenary sessions. NORM has truly come of age. This is where the “business” of rheumatology gets learned. The ”guildmanship” for rheumatology practice management is now strong.- Paul H. Caldron, DO, FACP, FACR, MBA, Arizona Arthritis and Rheumatology Associates
  • In a time of demanding changes in the management of medical practices in the US, NORM has been a lifesaver to the community of Rheumatology practices.  NORM has allowed our practice to stay ahead of the many demands of CMS and others payors and has ensured that our practice remains cognizant of new issues that arise in HIPPA compliance, human resources and medical billing to name a few. Sending our Practice Manager to NORM's conferences has been cost-effective and beneficial to our practice because she returns to our office with an abundance of information that otherwise would have taken months to compile. Every Rheumatology practice that wishes to stay on top of emerging issues in practice management should consider sending a member of their staff to NORM's conference.- Michael S. Rosen M.D., Chester County Rheumatology PC
  • Thanks to all those wonderful people in the NORM Network who respond to emails, offering their advice, experience, time, and support ... I haven't even been a member a full year yet and I am amazed at the dedication of everyone who responds to helping via emails and the NORM Organization itself! I have barely had a chance to explore the resources and I have yet to really dive into requests for help still I am silently learning so much and do occasionally offer what I can! Thank you all!- Cheryl Piambino, Kenneth E. Bresky, DO
