Registration is now open for the 2016 SCCA National Convention to be held January 21-23rd at the South Point Hotel and Casino in fabulous Las Vegas!
This year’s convention is made up of three key components, the Annual Meeting and Welcome Party, the SCCA Leadership Summit and the Hall of Fame Ceremony and Banquet. Below there is a description of each, along with registration and travel information.
Annual Meeting and Welcome Party: Come one; come all for the SCCA State of the Club address, followed by the official convention kick off party. The meeting will be held on Thursday afternoon with the Welcome Party to follow.
SCCA Leadership Summit: The Leadership Summit is a two-day gathering of current and future SCCA Regional, Divisional and Nationals leaders to learn, share, discuss and connect. Kicking off Friday morning, the format will include both facilitated sessions and interest area and specialty focused discussion groups. Topics will range from event management and leadership strategies to SCCA skill building and technology developments that can be used to grow our club, your Region and improve the member experience.
Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony and Banquet:
In keeping with Convention tradition, Saturday night we will close the event by honoring our history and heritage by inducting the next 5 members of the SCCA Hall of Fame. Join us as we celebrate the larger than life personalities that have made our club what it is with dinner as they share their stories and memories.
