Excitement is building as planning for NAP’s 41st Biennial Convention progresses. “Rising Higher Together” is the theme of this year’s event and it captures the spirit and the vision of the association.

The actual event will take place at the Westin Lombard Yorktown Center, a short drive or train ride from all the wonders of Chicago. We’ve negotiated great room rates so be sure to plan extra days to see and experience this great city. There really is something for everyone: the beach, Broadway-quality theater, great architecture, awe-inspiring museums and aquarium, and world-class shopping (for all budgets). If sports is more your cup of tea, then welcome to the home of the Chicago Cubs, the 2016 World-Series champion baseball team. Chicago is also well known for its other baseball team plus its football, hockey, and basketball teams.

The convention gets down to work on Friday, September 8, with the opening business meeting. Education, business, and networking fill the days that follow. More than 30 educational workshops and sessions are being planned on a wide range of topics for parliamentarians at all levels.
