2015 Statewide Conference

SAVE THE DATE! 41st Annual NCAVA Conference Hosted by The DOVIA Chapter

Wednesday, May 13 – Friday, May 15 ~ Hilton Riverside, Wilmington

Join the Cape Fear DOVIA Chapter as the host “Rollin’ on the River” in beautiful downtown Wilmington in May 2015! The charming Cape Fear River is a perfect backdrop for a vibrant and educational conference. In addition to its beautiful beaches, Wilmington offers a plethora of activities for individuals, couples, and families, including the Battleship North Carolina, the Fort Fisher Aquarium, the UNCW campus, tons of shopping and eating options, a historic downtown area, Screen Gems studios, and lots more. Wilmington will serve not only as a wonderful place to have a conference, but also provide a vacation-like experience! We hope that you can start your planning (and budgeting) now so that you are able to join us May 2015 as we learn together and enjoy the eastern shores of our great state!

Please send all questions to Conference Chair Brooke Banson at bbanson@nccoastalpines.org or 910-202-9203.

Call on members! Would you lend your graphic design talents? We need assistance with the conference logo. Nothing major, something to reflect the theme of Rollin’ on the River. If so, contact Brooke @ bbanson@nccoastalpines.org or 910-202-9203
