The Talk

Dear NGA Members and Customers,

Our thoughts are with you and your families during these difficult and uncertain times. Now more than ever, we understand how connected we are on this planet. 

As of March 16, the entire NGA staff is working remotely; all staff will stay connected to each other and to you and are available to answer your questions via email and phone. NGA closed its headquarters office in Vienna, Virginia, on Friday and will remain closed until Tuesday, March 31. 

As the COVID-19 situation evolves, our plans may too; until then, we continue our work to serve you and our industry. We will continue reaching out through our digital channels. 

Last week you likely saw reports and maybe listened online to Italian citizens singing from their balconies while quarantined. For me, it was a hopeful expression of how people in dire, fearful conditions still manage to help one another, if even just through a song or a smile.

We hope that you, your families, friends and co-workers stay healthy as we all do the best we can to support one another with compassion. Find COVID-19 Information from NGA Here
