Class 31 and 32 Induction Ceremony and Fall Meeting-Registration NOW AVAILABLE!

Monday, October 4, 2021 – Wednesday, October 6, 2021


October 4-6, 2021 Live from Indianapolis!  (subject to health and safety measures)

The College is planning to hold a three-day meeting in Indianapolis, immediately preceding the NCBJ Annual Meeting.  The event will feature educational programs and our usual battery of Board meetings and will be highlighted on October 5, 2021 by the Induction Ceremony for Classes 31 and 32 and the presentation of our 2021 Distinguished Service Award.

For those who may remain uncomfortable with travel in October, we will work to accommodate online options for the various educational and networking events.  


The College does NOT have a separate block of rooms for the event, but NCBJ has generously providing access to their room block rate as below:

NCBJ 95th Annual Conference has two official host hotels – the J W Marriott tower and in a wing of the same building, a Courtyard by Marriott. Both hotels’ guest rooms have indoor elevator and hallway connections to the JW Marriott meeting space.

The NCBJ group rates for a standard JW Marriott guest room is $249 plus tax or $291.33 a night. The Courtyard guest rooms are $198 plus tax or $ 231 a night.

Please use this link to book your hotel reservation; do not book through the hotel’s website or 800 number – you cannot access the NCBJ rate there.

Reservations require a one night deposit by credit card or check at the time of booking. The deposit is refundable if the reservation is cancelled 72 or more hours before the date of arrival.The group block closes SUNDAY September 5th of Labor Day weekend – that is 30 days before the conference. Reservation after the group cut-off date, if available, will be at higher rates. The NCBJ rates are guaranteed if a guest room is available and booked before the group cut-off date. King and Queen-Queen bedded rooms are available in both hotels and will be assigned on the day you check in at 4 pm.
