First time at an NCA Convention?  Welcome!

To help first-timers get their convention bearings, NCA has developed an Ambassador Program, whereby new registrants are introduced to long-time NCA members. The ambassador will contact the first-time attendee before the convention; meet them at the First-Time Attendee/New Member Reception; and generally be available throughout the convention. By indicating on the registration form that the 2010 Annual Convention will be your first, you will automatically be enrolled in the Ambassador Program unless you decline to participate.

First-Time Attendee/New Member Reception  
If you’ve joined the NCA within the last twelve months or if this is your first time attending an NCA Convention, please join us for a cocktail and some lively conversation.  Members of the NCA Board of Directors will be there to welcome you and toast your excellent decision to join us in Dana Point this year. Think of this reception as a warm-up for the bigger one that directly follows...

Convention Welcome Reception
Here’s your chance to catch up with all of your old friends and meet new ones. The Allied-sponsored Welcome Reception is a great way to kick off your convention. Plan to attend to say thanks to all the Allied Members who make this event possible.
