The North Carolina Association of Launderers and Cleaners (NCALC) is making some exciting changes with the 2018 Annual Convention.

The 2018 NCALC Annual Convention is being held October 19-21, 2018 at the StateView Hotel, located on the NCSU Centennial Campus, in Raleigh. The program offers significant value for owners, managers, and key staff of laundry and cleaning operations, and the social events and nearby attractions offer provide lots of interesting activities for everyone, including spouses and significant others.

As a part of the newly formatted Convention program, the Friday evening dinner event will feature a keynote presentation by professional speaker Denise Ryan. Ryan is described as a motivational pyromaniac and she will be speaking about “Dealing with Change without Going Up in Flames” Ryan’s infectious energy, humor, and enthusiasm are expected to make this evening both informational and entertaining for all members and guests in attendance.

The educational program on Saturday will focus on budgeting and planning for more profitable business, best practices in laundering and cleaning, and an update on the cleanup progress and how to take advantage of the Dry-Cleaning Solvent Clean-up Act (DSCA) program.

The convention will also include lots of opportunity for professional networking and fellowship with friends, table top vendor exhibits, the annual fundraising raffle, and the annual NCALC membership meeting. The program culminates with the President’s Reception and Recognition Banquet on Saturday evening,Note that the Convention has been planned in coordination with the dates of the North Carolina State Fair and the Consolidated Laundry and Equipment Show. The State Farmers Market and downtown Raleigh are also located near the Convention Hotel.

So plan now to attend the convention and make time to enjoy the many other area events and activities.
