New 7:30am Start Time Friday Morning: Interest in the New Political Landscape panel, which starts our meeting on Friday morning has soared. In order to allow enough time for all the questions, we decided to move the start time of our meeting on Friday morning to 7:30am. The start time for Thursday remains 8:00am.

The NCCRT annual meeting is now at capacity. If you have not yet registered and would like to be added to the meeting attendance wait list, please submit your name, organization and email address at this link: must be registered to attend.

If you need to cancel for any reason, please do not call the hotel, but rather let Dionne Christopher know by emailing her at [email protected]. Since hotel spots are at a premium, she can be sure that the room stays in our block and is given to another attendee. Many thanks for your help with this request!

Commuter advisory: Please be advised there will be a reduction in service for the red line Metro trains that go into Bethesda during the week of our meeting. Some red line trains will be running at 50% reduced service, which will also lead to traffic congestion. Some stations along the red line are closed altogether. Bottom line – map out your commute in advance, give yourself extra time and bring your patience. For more information, click here:
