Something for everyone at NPCThe ACA National Paddlesports Conference has multiple facets, from a series of educational sessions and social functions open to all, to Instructor Updates, a SUP race, to a wide range of pre and post conference courses, clinics, and workshops.

The 2013 Conference will also has a range of events including an urban water trail tour, the Reel Paddling Film Festival, and much more.

If you register for one event, but you would like to attend a course or a session or two from the other event, that is fine and will easily be accommodated on-site. Although most of the time during the day will be spent on different 'tracks', there will be several evening events together for enhacned networking opportunities.
