NCSLA is the oldest assisted living association in the state. We have been providing advocacy, support and education for the assisted living industry since 1961! We are a 501(c)6 business association and the Educational Foundation is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. These are some options for vendors to get involved with the association.
Vendors have the opportunity to join our association as vendor members. This gives them capabilities of seeing all member content on the website, access to our membership data & vendor data, obtain updates for the industry and opportunities for advertisement on our website & published materials. Joining the association also means vendors get to exhibit at our convention and trade show in the fall. The one time fee for exhibiting covers membership for the entire year following the convention and trade show, so to join you simply sign up as an exhibitor for that event.
There are two opportunities for exhibiting with NCSLA, the spring conference and the fall convention and trade show. Exhibiting at the fall conference gives vendors the opportunity to meet the majority of our members. It is the largest event we have and is in a centralized location of the state. It also includes a one year membership with the exhibiting fee. Exhibiting at the spring conference gives vendors the opportunity for a little more one-on-one time with our members. It is a smaller event and a more casual environment for getting to know everyone. There is a social, auction and dinner involved with this event which gives lots of networking time.
Exhibit at Fall Convention and Trade Show (exhibitor registration opens in summer 2020)
Exhibit at Spring Conference (exhibitor registration opens in spring 2020)
Vendors have the opportunity to sponsor our spring conference and golf tournament, fall convention and trade show, administrator in training classes (AIT), and continuing education (CEU) classes offered each month. Sponsoring an event gives vendors full advertisement for the events on all printed materials and on the website. Sponsoring an AIT or CEU class gives vendors the opportunity to do a quick presentation and network with members and nonmembers in attendance.

The success of our spring conference relies heavily on our auction. We are always looking for items and sponsorship of items for this auction. It is a tax write-off and is a GREAT help to the association. Consider donating!

Don't golf, but still want to interact with members at the golf tournament? Volunteering is the perfect opportunity for you! You can help hand out goody bags or drive a beverage cart. Both give you time with participants during the event and it is a LOT of fun! To volunteer, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
