We have been notified via telephone by John E. Saunders, III, Executive Director of the National Forum for Black Public Administrators, that the NFBPA National Site Selection Committee has selected Greensboro as their #1 candidate for the 2010 NFBPA Annual Conference. What this means is that the national NFBPA Office will begin negotiations with Koury Convention Center and Hotel, and will develop a contract for services, hotel rooms and amenities. Once the contract is finalized, then the national NFBPA Office will begin working with the Greensboro Area Convention & Visitors Bureau and our own NFBPA Chapter to host the 2010 Annual Conference in Greensboro. Of course, hosting a conference of this magnitude will have a great impact on our local economy. I would like to personally thank everyone involved in the national Site Selection Committee visit here in Greensboro. It is evident that they were impressed with what the City of Greensboro had to offer. We especially appreciate participation from our Mayor, City Council members, County Commissioners, Ava Pope of the Greensboro Convention & Visitors Bureau who served as our Host Coordinator, participants from the NC Triangle Chapter and Southern Piedmont Chapter of NFBPA, and of course YOU, our own members and supporters of the NC Triad Chapter. We look forward to working with our national NFBPA as we plan for NFBPA Forum 2010, keeping in mind that we will need support from our state and local officials and the private industry in order to make the 2010 Annual Conference a success! I am awaiting written confirmation of the great news, and I will keep you updated as I receive more information from the national NFBPA Office. --Deywon Arant-McAdoo, President

Are We Ready?                                                                                             National NFBPA Conference in Greensboro, NC in 2010 We held the first 2010 Planning Committee meeting last Thursday at the Greensboro Convention and Visitors Bureau.
