NCALC to Convene in Asheville

The NCALC 2019 Spring Meeting will be held May 17-19, 2019 at the Cambria Hotel Downtown Asheville, in Asheville, North Carolina. As the cornerstone of this event, the NCALC Board of Directors will be holding its regular Spring Board Meeting and associated committee meetings on Saturday morning, May 18, 2019. In addition to these regular business meetings, several other activities of interest are planned for all members and friends, regardless of whether they serve on the Board or committees.

On Friday afternoon, a facilitated roundtable discussion will focus on SEO and Social Media Marketing. Our facilitator, George Self, is CEO of Apple Advertising in Asheville. Through his business, he regularly helps clients with the conversion from traditional marketing to the power of digital communications. He will guide the roundtable discussion as participants discover what’s new in the world of corporate social media marketing and SEO, why it is important, how it works, who is using it, and how to use it effectively in the Fabricare Industry. Participating cleaners will share what they feel works best for their organizations and, ideally, come up with ideas to take home and try in their own company.

On Saturday afternoon, meeting participants are invited to learn first-hand about craft brewing from pioneers in the industry during a guided tour at the Highland Brewery.

Informal dinner socials are planned for both Friday and Saturday evenings to provide all NCALC members and friends with opportunities for networking and fellowship, while sampling some of Asheville’s wonderful restaurant offerings. The Friday evening dinner event will be held in the Cambria Hotel with the meal prepared in the kitchen of Hemingway’s Cuba, and the Saturday evening event will be a dinner outing to the nearby Isa’s Bistro. In addition to the planned NCALC activities, the Asheville area offers many other attractions for Spring Meeting participants. All Spring Meeting activities are open to all NCALC members and friends (including spouses and significant others) with advance registration.
