2018 Annual Professional Development Conference
Each year, NAHO polls the attendees at its Professional Development Conference regarding the cities in which they'd like NAHO to host a conference. For several years, one of the cities requested most has been San Diego. By popular demand, NAHO will hold its 2018 Conference in San Diego, California.
This annual gathering provides 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 is an opportunity for networking and provides a forum in which to meet and discuss ideas and issues impacting the administrative hearing process.
The Conference will deliver an array of educational courses on general administrative law topics, elimination of bias, hearings practice, and specialized subjects such as decision/order writing, evidence (basic and advance), hearing management, ethical issues, alternative dispute resolution (basic and advanced) and many more timely subjects.
NAHO prides itself on the quality of its faculty. Instructors include professors who are recognized experts in administrative law, appellate judges, and experienced administrative adjudicators. The conference will also include interactive panel and roundtable discussions led by knowledgeable administrative hearing officials.
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 piers. Our hotel is on Harbor Drive. A shuttle runs the length of Harbor Drive passing the Maritime Museum, the USS Midway and many shops and restaurants.
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.
