Hitch Up the BRAND Wagon!

For NCMPR's 2019 national conference, it's all about branding (and we don't mean cattle). We're heading to Texas Hill Country -- sprinkled with rolling hills, wildflowers and breathtaking vistas -- to inspire BIG IDEAS for branding two-year community and technical colleges. 

Whether you prefer outdoor recreation or big-city culture, you’ll find something to love about Texas Hill Country. This part of the Lone Star State is known for its rolling hills, scenic rivers and lakes, and unique small towns that have their own stories to tell. Perched on its southern edge is San Antonio, a major city in south-central Texas with a rich colonial heritage. It’s home to the Alamo, an 18th-century Spanish mission preserved as a museum and the site of an infamous 1836 battle for Texan independence from Mexico. It’s also known for its famed River Walk, a miles-long pedestrian promenade lined with cafés and shops.

Conference headquarters is the Hyatt Regency Hill Country. Nestled on 300 acres of historic ranch land and located just 20 minutes from the San Antonio airport and River Walk, it offers a unique blend of countryside relaxation, casual elegance and Texas-sized hospitality.
