NGAT Conference

Our 65th Annual NGAT Conference will be held at the Kalahari Resorts & Conventions in Round Rock, Texas on March 21-24, 2024. We are exciting to go back to the Kalahari because it has so much to offer and is also a great get-away for our members and their families. The Conference planning is well underway. The hotel will open for booking in July so be sure to watch our page and get a room before they are all gone.
