The Army Nurse Corps Association has since its founding held conventions every two years on even-numbered years, except for 2020, which had to be postponed because of the Covid pandemic. Our biennial gatherings include an agenda and speaker platform designed for celebrating the past, capitalizing on the present and connecting for the future; a number of contact hours of nursing continuing education; and a selection of research posters. Traditionally we receive an update presentation on the current State of the ANC, and feature other distinguished speakers during our luncheon and gala banquet. And of course, these events always serve as a reunion and networking opportunity, and include a silent auction and a selection of both educational and fun tours of the varied locations around the US where they are scheduled.
Our next convention is scheduled for 26-29 September 2024, at the Embassy Suites hotel in a Raleigh, North Carolina, suburb – Cary, NC. The all-suites facility is beautiful and surrounded by a stunning wooded area but it’s an easy walk to nearby restaurants and shopping. The hotel offers breakfast and an evening reception daily to all those staying onsite. We look forward to seeing our ANCA members and hopefully some fresh faces at this convention! As is our tradition, we will offer tours of Raleigh attractions during the day on Thursday and a WRAIN Reception that evening. Friday will start our general and continuing education sessions along with a plated lunch and a reception for all attendees on Friday evening. On Saturday, our general sessions will continue, with our Gala on Saturday night. Sunday morning we’ll conclude with our general sessions and a plated lunch. As always, we will have our ANCA store available during the Convention.
We hope you'll mark your calendar now and plan to join us there! Registration is projected to begin in January 2024. For up-to-date details check this page often, or contact Convention Chair COL (Ret.) Kimberly Biever at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
