The biennial NATS National Conference attracts NATS members and others from around the world to share in programs, demonstrations, lectures, master classes and competitions that help celebrate the art of singing and increase knowledge of teachers to help them better assist their students.
Make your plans to exhibit at the NATS 55th National Conference. Take this opportunity to promote your products and services to more than 1,000 voice professionals.
Thank you to all of the NATS members and friends who have submitted presentation proposals for the 2018 National Conference. The call for presentations has closed, with close to 175 proposals received. Thanks to your great work, we look forward to announcing an exciting conference program in early August.
NATS members and friends are invited to submit abstracts for presentation consideration in poster paper format at the 55th National Conference in Las Vegas, June 22-26, 2018. Submissions will be reviewed after the deadline of December 1, 2017. John Nix, Coordinator, will notify everyone who made a submission early next year.
