Texas Notes for NLC:

Texas will be housed at the Gaylord Texan in Grapevine. Keep sharing your photos and posts as you prepare for NLC with your chapter #bpaallday. Find Big Hank or #LiLHank in the lobby of the Gaylord Texan and take a chapter photo. Don't miss out on the BPA University, Leadership Academy, National Intern program, National Day of Service, the Alumni Scavenger Hunt and all the great photo opportunities during the conference.


Parking Information for Gaylord Texan
Overnight self-parking for car/truck/SUV is available in the Gaylord Texan Parking Garage for $14.30, and valet parking is $31.00.

Great news! The Gaylord Texan will be waiving all bus parking fees for NLC!

Bus parking will still take place in Lot R/Marshalling yard as originally planned. Drivers will be responsible for getting from Lot R/Marshalling yard to the hotel on their own though as they will not have a shuttle available for them. In order to plan for parking and departure of the buses, please complete this form if you will be using the bus parking. This information will allow the hotel to ensure that everyone has a flawless departure. https://tinyurl.com/TXNLCbusparking
