Convention 2012 - Up and Down the Coasts - September 19-23
Our 2012 convention will be headquartered in St. Joseph, Michigan on September 19th through 23rd. St. Joseph is located on the shore of Lake Michigan, and is one of the region's most beautiful cities.
September 19 will the the NCA Technical Conference Day, an optional pre-convention program designed for owners, operators, and volunteers of carousels. Hosted by the Silver Beach Carousel, this one day program will cover topics such as marketing and promotions, band organs, retail shops, maintenance, and safety.
The one day convention pre-event was begun in 2010, and it will be included with our conventions every other year in even-numbered years, allowing those who attend the conference to participate in this technical outreach program provided by the NCA. (A dedicated technical conference will take place during the spring in odd-numbered years.)
Photo shows are available for five of the carousels that we will be visiting.
