Need to register for the National Club Conference or another upcoming event? Just come ask. We can’t wait to see you in Las Vegas!

The association was happy to announce in February the renewal of its Strategic Alliance Corporate Partnership with Club Benchmarking for the eighth consecutive year. 

NCA continues to monitor issues that may affect private clubs, including the Department of Labor’s Independent Contractor rule; download our backgrounder for clubs on the issue here. Last month, we shared club-specific regulatory and legislative news in the Washington Weekly Update: Feb. 5,Feb. 12 and Feb. 26.

You haven’t experienced networking like you’ll find at the 2024 National Club Conference, April 28-30 at the new Omni PGA Frisco Resort, Texas. From our legendary Chair’s Reception and the Excellence in Club Management Awards Dinner & Gala, to night golf, a putting competition, genuine Texas BBQ, a hands-on tour and demos at Middleby Innovation Kitchens, and a special get-to-know-you welcome reception for NCA’s newest members (plus renowned speakers on the economy, the state of the club industry, club leadership, governance and so much more), the National Club Conference is like nothing else—this will be our 20th NCC!—and limited seats remain. Register here to guarantee your spot at the best rate and we’ll see you in Frisco!
