The NCA’s 102nd Convention has moved west to San Francisco and the iconic Palace Hotel, a landmark property in downtown San Francisco. Well-known for its exceptional standard of hospitality and as a world-class destination for international conferences, the Palace features such timeless creations as its Garden Court's stained glass dome and the 1909 Maxfield Parrish mural of "The Pied Piper of Hamlin."

San Francisco is an ideal city and the Palace the perfect venue for the 2013 edition of the NCA's most important event of the year. Following highly-successful annual NCA Conventions in New Orleans and Charleston, we feel sure that the Palace Hotel and beautiful San Francisco will surpass the expectations of both returning and first-time Convention attendees in 2013.

As always, the 2013 Convention will feature a strong educational program, numerous opportunities for networking and plenty of fun for all.
