With the organization dating back as early as 1971, there have been changes in names, board members, conferences and much much more. So NCTIES, ARE YOU READY FOR AN EXTREME MAKEOVER? Starting this coming year, the annual conference will be held at the new Raleigh Convention Center.

We look forward to seeing everyone in our new home on March 4, 5, and 6. Mark your calendars now to join the construction team in Raleigh, North Carolina.

During our extreme makeover, we will host a variety of building contractors such as Vicki "Cool Cat" Davis, Leslie "Digital" Fisher, Meg "Writer" Ormiston, Cris "Idea" Crissman and Bill "Builder" Lovin, David "Landmark" Warlick, Will "Weblogg-ed" Richardson, Tammy "Tech Tips" Worcester, Howie "Digital Journey" DiBlasi, and many many more.
