The National Association of Medicaid Directors (NAMD) was created in 2010. It launched in direct response to the legislation creating universal healthcare as a national policy. It is focused on assisting Medicaid Directors coming together and uniting to influence national healthcare policy.

Upon creation, NAMD began a national conference program that has grown to more than 800 attendees. The program’s success was challenged by limitations in developing and implementing a cohesive event. ARB Meetings and Events was selected as their strategic partner to oversee and enhance their annual conference.
