The National Leadership Conference plays a critical role in training state leaders, building strong networks, and assisting you with membership growth. The program is designed specifically for incoming state leaders (President-elects, Vice Presidents, Membership Chairs, and Association Executive staff.)

State leaders participating in NLC can help strengthen the national Association, as well as their own state affiliates, by sharing the resources and relationships they have built with the next group of SNA leaders.

Combine a first-rate meeting and a one-of-a-kind city, and you have the recipe for a memorable meeting. Louisville is the city of originals, defined according to its own terms. The city balances longstanding traditions with an increasingly progressive way of life, embraces diverse cultural roots and mixes urban excitement with cozy neighborhoods and resplendent natural areas.

Within a mile of the hotel lobby, you can check out the Louisville Ballet, Louisville Orchestra, Actors Theatre of Louisville, the Muhammad Ali Center, Louisville Slugger Museum & Factory, Louisville Slugger Field and Bats Stadium, Louisville Science Center, Glassworks and many other exciting tourist attractions. Of course, no visit to “Derby City” would be complete without the classic Louisville experience of Churchill Downs, home of the world's most famous thoroughbred horserace: the Kentucky Derby.
