World Convention in Orlando, Florida, 2018

WCNA 37 – “The Magic Is Still Real

30 August through 2 September 2018
Orlando, FL, USA

Excitement is building, and we are almost ready to open pre-registration and hotel reservations for WCNA 37! We expect to go on sale sometime in September 2017. We will send out an email when we know the exact dates. Right now, we are busy finalizing contracts and making arrangements for what is certain to be a wonderful celebration of our recovery in Orlando, Florida. We are also working to improve the onsite experience for everyone who pre-registers; we hope better use of technology will speed up the process of picking up your packages.

There is another incentive to pre-register: We are planning a drawing for two full convention packages, including registration and all WCNA special event tickets (but not including pre-registration merchandise). All members who pre-register before the cutoff date will be eligible. There will be more specific details about this when we registration opens.

We do need to let you know that there was an incident in which one of the hotel chains may have given the impression that hotel rooms blocked at our convention rate were on sale by taking a small number of room reservations from NA members. This happened without our authorization or involvement. As we understand it, the hotel(s) are working to resolve this challenge. Please note that there are already outside websites or apps that are saying “book your hotel now” these are not from us. We will provide you with all the links to the official site when we go live.

We expect that we will go on sale without all the details worked out on some of the entertainment and special events, which is not unusual for a World Convention. We will add events as they become finalized, but you need not wait to register. Special event seating assignments are determined by the date of pre-registration. This means that the location of your seat for ticketed events is driven by the registration date, not by the date you purchase the tickets. The key to getting the best seats is to register early.

Information about WCNA 37 workshop and main speaker submissions and volunteer sign-up will be made available once we go on sale.

Also, we try to help members who need assistance with visas to enter the US. Please contact elaine@na.org for more information.

Again, we are working feverishly to get the details worked out as quickly as possible.

See you in Orlando!
