First time attending an NACD Annual Meeting? 

If you have never attended an NACD annual meeting in the past, you may be eligible for a first-timer scholarship! Thanks to the generous support of AgriDrain Corporation, NACD will once again be offering selected first-timers complimentary meeting registration. Only one person per state or territory may receive a scholarship, and chosen individuals must stay in the NACD room block at the New Orleans Marriot. Scholarships are limited to the first 20 individuals submitted so don’t delay! Once a state or territory association selects a scholarship recipient in cooperation with their NACD board member, they are asked to send the recipient’s name and email address to NACD Director of Membership Engagement Dr. Ariel Rivers at ariel-rivers[at] to complete their registration.

NACD’s 2023 Annual Meeting will be held at the New Orleans Marriot. The group room rate is $236 not including taxes or resort fees.
