All aboard for Nashville! Site of the 137th NGAUS General Conference and Exhibition, 10-13 September 2015, delegations from all the state, territory and district associations will gather in the magnificent 2000-room Gaylord Opryland Hotel in Nashville, Tennessee.
The Arkansas delegation will enjoy a spacious garden conservatory hospitality room for conference caucuses as well as to relax and enjoy cool refreshments and snacks while visiting with friends from Arkansas and the many others that stop in. We want to be sure to show everyone our southern hospitality!
Sleeping rooms have been reserved for our delegation. Upon receipt of your $165.00 conference registration, NGAA will assign one of those to you. The $176.02 room cost per night includes all taxes, fees and in-room WiFi/internet service. On-site vehicle parking is $13 per day, and your room card will allow access to the parking lot.
The registration fee includes admission to the business meetings, exhibits area, Governor’s Reception, Spouse Luncheon, a mixer for company grade/warrant officers at the Wild Horse Saloon, and all the Hospitality Night venues to include a special invitation to the renowned SEC hospitality event at the nearby Dave and Buster's Restaurant. Then, the grand finale on Sunday evening includes a no-host cocktail reception, States Dinner and a special show at the Grand Ole Opry.
No need to bring formal wear or mess dress military uniforms since “Cowboy Tuxedo” is the attire for the States Dinner. That means blue jeans and boots if you wish. Cowboy hats are optional. Ladies' dress is casual, and many will sport their favorite western attire.
Business meeting attire is the duty uniform, and all other events are business casual.
Optional events not covered by your registration fee include the Jack Daniel's Motorcycle Rally, NGAUS Golf Tournament, and 5K Fun Run. Participation in the optional events may necessitate arriving on Wednesday, 9 September.
