Asheville, NC / May 1–4
Experienced convention attendees tell us that their spouse is a valuable asset in helping them build essential industry relationships. In many cases, the socializing among spouses at BSA networking and social events leads to additional personal contacts among convention attendees. BSA has planned a number of convention activities to include spouses/companions. All of the social and leisure events on Saturday, Sunday, Monday and Tuesday include spouses and companions. If you have any questions, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. We strive to ensure all of our Convention attendees, including spouses and companions, have the best possible experience at the BSA Convention!
All leisure activities have a minimum participation requirement and are subject to cancellation. If a cancellation occurs, attendees will be notified via email ahead of time.
