accessible to the entire country NBS strives to stage the National
show in various locations. The map shows the four regions and our ideal is to
locate sequentially from first thru fourth region.
Impacting the choices is the availability of a suitable show hall and a host club at that location.
Hosting a National can be a rewarding and profitable experience for your club. The key to success is largely in negotiating a favorable contract with the hotel for rooms and show space. Directors John Muscato & Robert Wild can provide information to anyone interested in hosting the show. Contact them at firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com
