The Nevada Press Association’s annual convention will be Sept. 29-30 in Carson City.
Plan to join us on Friday, Sept. 29, for a reception at the historic Rinckel Mansion, home of the NPA (as well as offices of the capital bureaus of the Las Vegas Review-Journal, Associated Press and Nevada Photo Source. It’s right downtown in close walking distance of the Capitol, Legislative Building, Supreme Court and other places to visit.
The Saturday night banquet will be at the Carson Nugget, just a couple of blocks away in the heart of downtown. The closest lodging is Carson Tahoe Hotel, a block from the Nugget. Rooms there will be limited, but there are several quality places to stay in Carson City. If you’d like some suggestions, just ask.
During your visit, there will be plenty of opportunities to tour Carson City’s historic buildings and outstanding museums. In fact, we’d like to know if there are some particular places you’d like to see so that we may set up tours. Take the poll below.
And if you mark ‘Somewhere else,’ drop us a note about where you’d like to go. Similarly, we welcome ideas on the kind of training sessions we should offer.
Of course, there will also be a general membership meeting on Saturday morning during the convention.. It’s the highlight of the year for NPA members — our chance to gather with colleagues and, of course, celebrate the awards for the best journalism in Nevada.
