Please note that there is a company reaching out to NCRA Convention and Expo attendees with directions to contact a 1-800 number, under the pretense of having important information regarding NCRA events and hotel accommodations. This company is NOT affiliated with NCRA.

NCRA does not solicit attendees for housing reservations. For questions regarding the NCRA Annual Convention & Expo, or any of NCRA events, please visit our website, or contact the meetings department at meetings@ncra.org.
