NAHO inadvertently scheduled the Conference during the observance of the Jewish holy days of Rosh Hashanah. We apologize to those of you who will be unable to attend some or all of the Conference due to this error.  Should you be able to come for part of the Conference, NAHO will be reducing its daily attendance rates for those impacted by this scheduling conflict. 

 NAHO extends its sincere apologies for this unfortunate oversight; steps have been taken to ensure that this will not happen again.




Join your colleagues the 2018 Professional Development Conference in San Diego. The conference is structured to deliver an array of educational courses on general administrative law topics, elimination of bias, hearings practice, and specialized subjects such as writing, evidence (basic and advanced), hearing management, ethical issues, alternative dispute resolution (basic and advanced) and many more timely subjects.

The Conference will be held at the Marriott Marquis and Marina in San Diego. The hotel is adjacent to the Marina Walk—a waterfront walkway that will take you through a number of parks and the marina. The Gaslamp Quarter, a short, flat, easy walk from the hotel, is on the National Registry of Historic Places and is home to fascinating boutiques, galleries, live music venues and dining choices ranging from casual to upscale. If you’d like to visit Balboa Park, Old Town, Coronado, or San Diego’s world-renowned zoo, there is a hop-on, hop-off trolley bus which stops directly outside the hotel to take you there.
