Friday Evening Options

Friday night's open agenda will provide conference attendees with a number of options to experience restaurants and entertainment in Catawba County and the region. On-site, attendees can purchase a ticket to the NC Association of Black County Officials (NCABCO Scholarship Banquet), or choose to have dinner with YouthVoice delegates.

At the conclusion of the early bird registration period (ends July 31), the NCACC will poll registrants to sign up for a handful of off-site options, offered on a first-come, first-served basis while space remains:

  • Hickory Crawdads baseball
  • Trolley to nearby downtown Morganton

Update: RSVP information was distributed to all registrants via email on Wednesday, August 8. Tickets for the baseball game and the trolley will sell out quickly, so please make your arrangements as soon as possible. The RSVP Page can be accessed here.
