48th Annual Convention

Convention: Saturday, May 28–Monday, May 30

Boston Convention & Exhibition Center

We are excited to host our 48th Annual Convention in Boston, Massachusetts! This city is one of the oldest in the United States and is known for its revolutionary history. The Freedom Trail, a 2.5-mile walk through our nation’s history, includes the Boston Tea Party Ships & Museums, Faneuil Hall, Old North Church, and many more historic attractions.


The event will be held in the Boston Convention & Exhibition Center, located in the Seaport area. This area offers over 50 bars, restaurants and shops all within a mile of the convention center. Conveniently located inside the Westin Boston Waterfront is Laugh Boston, a stand-up and improv comedy club featuring local and national talent. Right outside the convention center is The Lawn on D, a grassy outdoor space featuring live music, lawn games, movie screenings, and interactive art installations. A short drive away are both The Institute of Contemporary Art and the Museum of Fine Arts of Boston, as well as Fenway Park, home to the Boston Red Sox.


Boston Logan International Airport (BOS) is the primary airport serving New England, and one of the nation’s busiest airports. More than 40 airlines fly nonstop to more than 100 domestic and international destinations. A free shuttle bus system connects the airport to public transportation. The Silver Line to South Station in downtown Boston is also free.
