If your organisation has not registered for NHIVNA conferences previously, then your form needs to be accompanied by a brief résumé of the aims and objectives of your organisation on headed paper. Please note that it is necessary for community registrants to purchase a Conference Social Event ticket if they wish to attend this event.
