Tickets. There is no charge for sponsored functions: Monday's Box Lunch; Tuesday's Breakfast, Luncheon, or Reception; or Wednesday's Breakfast or Luncheon. This year, you will need to sign up for the events you want to attend. Tickets for the functions will be handed to you on site when you check in or register, while supplies last. The number of tickets for each event is limited. If you receive a ticket to a function that you decide not to use, please return it to the on-site Registration Desk as early as possible prior to the function. Guest tickets are not available at any time. Only those who are fully registered for the conference are eligible to receive the free tickets for the sponsored events. Learn more by viewing the FAQ: Understanding Meal Function Procedures at the NCSM Annual Conference.


Location. All sessions are held at the Manchester Grand Hyatt Hotel, San Diego.

First-Come, First-Seated. Seating at all sessions is on a first-come, first-seated basis, so be sure to have alternate sessions in mind for all time slots. Note, because of fire codes, no one will be allowed to remain in a session unless a seat is available.

Updates. Information on our Website will be updated as new information becomes available. Session times and locations will be posted by the end of the year. A program book, including the most current session descriptions, will be distributed to attendees on site at check-in and registration.
