2022 Convention - June 24-25

Convention will proceed in much the same manner as in past years, with preliminary events on Wednesday evening, Thursday during the day, and then the Glass Dash and Glass Show on Friday and Saturday. Banquets on both Friday and Saturday nights along with a very short membership meeting and the popular "Bring and Brag" session, emceed by Lynn Welker.

What can you do if you arrive early in Cambridge? Of course, you could always go shopping either in Cambridge or the area. I was told the Baker Family Museum in Caldwell Ohio will be closed until June 1st, but it should be open for you to visit in June. Of course, you'll want to make time to see the National Museum of Cambridge Glass and see all the improvement that you have read about in the Crystal Ball.

Once again we will have online Convention registration.

One other piece of good news, so far, the conference hotels of Comfort Inn and Sleep Inn are continuing their rates for this year. That's $79 for a king bed room (2 queen rooms will be on an as available basis, so book early!). These rates are good for NCC members any time of the year. Below are links to book a reservation for these two properties.

Mark your calendars and we will see you in June!

Directions to Pritchard-Laughlin Civic Center

The directions to the Pritchard-Laughlin Civic Center are quite simple. To get there, take exit 176 off I-70, follow the road to where it comes to a "T" with US 40, turn right for about a quarter of a mile. The Pritchard-Laughlin Civic Center will be on your left. Here is a basic map to the Civic Center.

Glass Dash

Area Hotels

Once again this year, our Host Hotel will be the Comfort Inn with a nightly rate of $79. If you prefer, there is a Sleep Inn next door. It is a sister hotel and offers the same $79 rate.
