The 2021 NAPCA Convention will be held on October 27-30, 2021, at the majestic JW Marriott Hill Country Resort and Spa in San Antonio, Texas. The Texas Hill Country will be a truly fantastic backdrop for our 56th convention. San Antonio boasts an international airport that should make travel seamless for most attendees who must fly. It also is a short drive from Houston, Dallas, and other parts in Texas, which will elilminate the cost of airfare and rental cars or other ground transportation for those who can travel by car.
This convention hopefully represents a return to normalcy and the first NAPCA convention to be held since April 2019 in Coronado, California. My how time flies when there is a pandemic! October is a spectacular time to be in San Antonio and we think most members will enjoy that it is centrally located, making travel arrangements less cumbersome for most of our members, regardless of where you live. We regret that we had to reschedule the convention from April to October 2021. However, it ended up raining each day in April when we would have had the convention so the postponement worked to our benefit.
We have secured the speakers who will present at the convention and our planning efforts are continuing so we can treat you to a spectacular return to NAPCA conventions and potentially to regular business. The convention will provide all attendees with networking opportunities, a selection of interesting presentation topics, and an opportunity to relax and enjoy one of the most enjoyable climates in the United States. Only NAPCA members (including retired members) in all categories, their spouses and significant others, and individuals invited by NAPCA are eligible to participate in the convention.
