Thank you to all who participated in the 2019 NAPHSIS Annual Meeting in Columbus, Ohio June 3-6. We had 300 attendees present representing all of our member jurisdictions, corporate partners and affiliate organizations. It was a resounding success with exhibitor demonstrations, enlightening guest speakers and shared knowledge among the jurisdictions in the innovation sessions. This year's meeting included more compelling evidence of the growing importance of vital records and why our association needs to stand at the forefront of the national effort to improve public health and protect personal identity.
