Message from convention host
Dear NOA members,
It is exciting to think of all of you coming to the January 2017 Convention in Santa Barbara! The Fess Parker is a great venue for us, and I think you will enjoy your stay immensely. Along with all the great sessions, performances, and competitions, I hope to have a few "Santa Barbara" events and activities that will be special to this great part of the country. Travel is very easy out of our airport, and if you plan ahead to stay Sunday, I will be leading a wine tasting journey to the heart of Santa Barbara wine country that would be a great end to the convention. More on that soon...
I look forward to seeing you all in Santa Barbara!Ben Brecher, local convention host
