About Our Most Recent Annual (In-Person) Conference:
NAHO held its 2022 Annual Conference August 7, 2022, through August 10, 2022, in Chicago, Illinois, at the newly redesigned Pendry Hotel.
This annual gathering provided NAHO members, attorneys involved in the practice of administrative law and all who are involved in some aspect of administrative adjudication with training and professional development. It was an opportunity for networking and provided a forum in which to meet and discuss ideas and issues impacting the administrative hearing process.
The Conference delivered an array of educational courses on administrative law, ethics, interrupting and reducing implicit bias, best practices for presiding over hearings, decision writing, evidence, and many more valuable topics.
NAHO prides itself on the quality of its faculty. Instructors included professors who are recognized experts in administrative law, local circuit and appellate judges, attorneys, and experienced administrative adjudicators. The conference also included interactive panel and roundtable discussions led by skilled, knowledgeable administrative hearing officials.

2023 Professional Development Conference
The National Judicial College
September 10 - 13 Reno, NV
Created more than a half-century ago at the recommendation of a U.S. Supreme Court justice, The National Judicial College remains the only educational institution in the United States that teaches skills for presiding over administrative hearings to administrative hearing officials of all types from all over the country.
The NJC’s headquarters in Reno houses an auditorium, classrooms, model courtroom, computer lab, multimedia room, resource center, discussion areas, and administrative space. All classrooms are equipped with Smart Classroom teaching technology that integrates computers, responder systems, audio/visual equipment, and sound systems.
To ensure world-class education, the NJC prepares its volunteer faculty of administrative law judges and hearing officials, as well as paid professional experts such as law professors and security experts, by having both groups participate in a faculty development workshop. The workshops prepare instructors to teach adult learners.
NJC courses are often built around a “learn by doing” model that includes role playing, tests and quizzes, case studies, and learning games.
NAHO's venue for the 2023 Professional Development Conference is the Whitney Peak Hotel, in the heart of downtown Reno. It is Reno's only non-smoking and non-gaming luxury boutique property. It opened in 2014, and has recently remodeled its rooms and meeting spaces.
The hotel attributes its success to its unique features. Basecamp, a 7,000-square-foot indoor bouldering gym—boasts the world’s tallest indoor climbing wall. Heritage is a farm to table restaurant in the hotel with a menu that changes alongside the seasons. The Cargo Concert Hall is a unique gateway to the sounds of Reno, and highlights the Reno music scene.
Enjoy networking with your colleagues at the Whitney Peak Hotel, ideally located at 225 Virginia Avenue within easy walking distance of restaurants, museums, theaters, parks, and the River Walk!
