NCBLN Fall Conference Program!

SAVE THE DATE! The NCBLN Fall Conference has been set for Thursday, October 22 in Charlotte at the Speedway Club at Charlotte Motor Speedway. If you’ve never been there, you’re in for a treat! Really nice meeting accommodations and lunch overlooking the race track. Who knows, maybe some teams and drivers will be out on the track testing that day.
Registration will open at 9:00 AM and the meeting will start at 10:00 and go to approximately 3:30 pm. The conference program is really very strong, just see below.
