Join NCAPA for CME at the beach! 

No one does it better!  Sessions start and end early so our conference attendees can get out there and enjoy the wide sands of Myrtle Beach. Each day, sessions end by 3:30, followed by an assortment of fun beach activities throughout the week. Even better, the general sessions of the conference will be broadcast to all rooms of guests staying at the Kingston Plantation via closed circuit TV so you can even watch from your room! Attendees can pick up their badges as early as Sunday afternoon and join us for a kick-off reception on Sunday night at the poolside Pavilion. It's a week you don't want to miss!

NCAPA records the Summer Conference general sessions and will have them available to purchase online approximately 30 days after the conference concludes. Full conference registrants will receive a $50 discount on the already low price of $95. Which means, for an extra $45, you can access the general sessions again, at the time and place you choose. This is a great way to retain the knowledge gained at Summer Conference and, as an extra bonus, you get to claim an additional 29 credits of CME!

The NCAPA has reserved a block of rooms at the Kingston Plantation in Myrtle Beach. Rooms in the block fill up quickly, so we recommend you book your room early. Click here for the 2019 room block.

While you are here earning CME credits, you might as well have fun, too! NCAPA offers a number of activities after the general sessions each day for you and the whole family. All activities are held on the beach and include:

  • Monday: 5K Run and the Kids Fun Run;
  • Tuesday: Horseshoe Tournament and Sand Sculpting Contest;

  • Thursday: Corn Hole Tournament.

These activities are a great way to involve the whole family! All registration for these events is done onsite and the activities are free of charge. Be sure to bring your towel and your sunscreen and be ready to have a great time!

There are also activities offered by the Kingston Plantation for those guests staying onsite. Please visit for more information.

On Wednesday, the NCAPA will host the American Red Cross for an onsite blood drive. Every minute of every day, someone needs blood. That blood can only come from a volunteer donor, a person like you, who makes the choice to donate. You do not have to be registered for the conference to participate in the blood drive. We encourage all attendees, family members, hotel guests, hotel staff, EVERYONE to participate and help save a life!
