The NCHA Convention is fast approaching so please make your plans today! NCHA members are scheduled to meet on June 24 – 26, 2016, in Grapevine, Texas, at the beautiful Hilton DFW Lakes Hotel. The hotel room cutoff date is June 6, so be sure and make your hotel reservations as soon as possible to ensure you are able to get the NCHA group rate of $126/night. You may make your hotel reservations here. To make phone reservations, please dial 1-800-984-1344 and ask for the NCHA Convention rate. For those flying in, the hotel offers a complimentary shuttle.
This year, we are rolling out the red carpet and putting on our best western dressy attire to celebrate the accomplishments of NCHA’s Hall of Fame inductees. It is a lifelong accomplishment to be included in the Riders, Non-Pro, Horse and Members Halls of Fame for many. We hope you’ll join us Saturday night, June 25 for this great event. Through a grant from the Dogwood Foundation, the evening will include a full, table-service banquet. Everyone who is registered for the Convention is invited to attend the banquet as part of their registration fee of $125. As this is a plated dinner, we are asking spouses or others who are not attending the Convention meetings to pay a fee of $50. The night will feature live music, video tributes to our inductees and a great meal. Don’t miss this chance to honor our legends.
As a reminder, directors MUST be registered for the Convention and attend the regional directors meetings (on Saturday morning) and both board of directors meetings (Friday evening and Sunday morning) to be counted as present for the Convention. You cannot miss two consecutive Conventions or two during your three year term and maintain your place on the board.
Join us Thursday, June 23 for the 6th Annual Zack T Wood Memorial Golf Tournament sponsored by T-Cross Ranches and the Norris Foundation. The 4-man scramble starts at 1:00pm at Sky Creek Golf Club in Keller, Texas. You may register here. Hole sponsorships are available and benefit the NCHA Foundation. For more information, please contact Rebecca Brian.
We look forward to seeing you all in June. If you have any questions or want to register for the Convention, please contact Pam Robison in the NCHA office at (817) 244-6188.
