2017 Conference Location and Dates!

February 2-4, 2017 in Charleston, South Carolina

The 2017 NCSA conference will take place on February 2-4 in the Francis Marion Hotel in Charleston, South Carolina.  Founded in 1670, Charleston is intimately linked with the history and culture of the nineteenth-century American South.  The beautifully preserved historic district, which is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, offers numerous examples of eighteenth and nineteenth-century architecture and maintains a strong sense of the early outlines of the town.  In addition to historic sites, museums, plantations, lovely coastal scenery, and mild temperatures, in recent years Charleston has also developed a vibrant restaurant scene, boasting several James Beard Award winning chefs and several listings on national “best restaurant” lists.  Charleston is regularly listed among the top tourist sites in the nation; in 2015 both Conde’ Nast Traveler and Travel + Leisure magazines named Charleston was named the #1 city for travelers in the US. (Conde’ Nast Traveler ranked Charleston the #2 city in the world.)

The Francis Marion Hotel is located on the edge of the historic district, within easy walking distance of iconic Charleston attractions and restaurants.  The hotel was built in 1924, at which time it was one of Charleston’s most luxurious hotels.  In 1996 it was re-opened after an extensive renovation. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the Francis Marion is a beautiful and comfortable hotel.  (And the shrimp and grits in their restaurant was recently named by the Wall Street Journal as one of the best in Charleston!)  The Charleston International Airport in served by Alaska Airlines, American Airlines, Delta, Jet Blue, Southwest, and US Air, and the airport is twenty minutes from the hotel.

We hope that you will join us in Charleston in 2017 for excellent scholarship, good food, and the opportunity to discover one of the United States’ most historic cities.
