Virtual Convention 


Here, in this corner of the American South, where European traditions blend with Caribbean influences, the history is as colorful as the local architecture; the food is the stuff of legend. Haitian and African Creoles developed an exotic, spicy cuisine and were instrumental in creating jazz and Cajun Zydeco. The street names are French and Spanish, the Creole architecture comes in a carnival of tropical colors, and the voodoo is a Caribbean import. The magic is irresistible.

Don’t Go Around the Block

When NAGC plans for the Annual Convention we negotiate with the hotels to block a sufficient number of rooms for attendees. We want you to feel safe and secure and to enjoy the hospitality of quality, upscale lodging. This year it couldn't be more convenient . . .  we're all under one roof!

Keep in mind that if NAGC does not fulfill our contractual obligation with these hotels, NAGC will be required to pay significant financial penalties, which will affect registration fees for future NAGC Conventions.
Please support your professional association by making your reservation with the official convention hotels. Find more information here.
