Hi

correct me if i am wrong.

"Rule 3. When I is one of the two subjects connected by either/or or neither/nor, put it second and follow it with the singular verb am. Example: Neither she nor I am going to the festival."

taken from : http://www.grammarbook.com/grammar/subjectVerbAgree.asp

therefore, i think the first one is correct. Neither they nor I am.

Courtesy, not grammar, asks for 'I' to follow other personal pronouns.
