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.
In July, 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
Small-group dinners with NCACC staff
Trolley to explore nearby Morganton, county seat of Burke County
The Hickory Crawdads, Class A affiliate of the Texas Rangers, play at 7 p.m. at L.P. Frans Stadium, a 15-minute drive from the convention center.
