    Tourism

    Experience San DiegoSan Diego is known for its beaches, parks and warm climate. Balboa Park is the site of the world-famous San Diego Zoo, as well as numerous art galleries, artist studios, museums and gardens. A deep harbor is home to a large active naval fleet, with the USS Midway, an aircraft-carrier-turned-museum, open to the public. Visitor information is available.

    Fraud alert
    Some NRHA’s members have been contacted by companies claiming to represent NRHA in booking hotel reservations for this conference. This is unfortunately a widespread problem in the meeting industry. NRHA does not use a third party booking service, and hotel reservations can be booked directly.

    NRHA certificates of attendance will be available at the registration desk. Attendees may use these certificates with third-party organizations or their employer as documentation of having received conference hours of instruction.
