Annual Meeting

We hope to see you next year January 27 – 31, 2018 at the Gaylord Opryland Resort and Convention Center in Nashville, Tennessee!

January may seem like a long way off, but it’s time to start brainstorming about innovative approaches and activities that your district wants to share with others. The application is available at the button below and should be submitted to Eric Hansen at by September 1.

This year’s Live Auction generated over $86,000 – all of which supports NACD’s education and outreach efforts. Thank you to our members and partners who donated, our auctioneer Johnny Regula, and master of ceremonies Brian Allmer, as well as our sponsors and those who bid on auction items.

Thank you for making NACD’s 71st Annual Meeting in Denver a wonderful event for everyone in attendance.
