  1. This year’s national conference is jointly sponsored by the National TB Controllers Association and the California TB Controllers Association. We are excited to take the conference “on the road” and recognize the opportunities for networking with our colleagues from local health programs throughout California!
  2. The registration fee for the 2018 NTC includes the NTCA section Meetings on Monday, May 21st, and the post-conference meetings, conducted by our DTBE colleagues, on Thursday afternoon, May 24th. If your schedule permits, please plan to join us for the entire 4 days of cutting-edge education and networking opportunities. You will not be disappointed. However, should you schedule preclude participating on all 4 days, there are one-day registration options available.
  3. If you are unable to attend the NTCA Section meetings on Monday, May 21st, please plan to join us for the official start to the 2018 National TB Conference – the Poster Discussion/Reception scheduled for 5:30 PM on Monday, May 21st. Please plan your travel to arrive at the hotel in time for this very special opening event. You won’t want to miss it!

We anticipate yet another outstanding conference developed by a committed group of your colleagues who have selected topics of great relevance, currency, and practical significance for the work we do together! Although it will be hard to top the conferences over the last few years, the 2018 one may be the best yet!
