Our hotel’s spacious, tastefully appointed guest rooms offer top-quality amenities and comfort whether you are traveling to Tucson, Arizona for leisure or business.

Deluxe hotel amenities include a full fitness center, an outdoor pool, and a selection of exceptional restaurants and bars. We look forward to welcoming the NACC at the award-winning Tucson University Park Hotel. To book your room and receive the $113 room rate, call the hotel directly at
(520) 792-4100 and identify yourself as a member of the NACC Conference 2018.


The Hotel is about 15 minutes North of the Tucson Internation Airport. Rental cars, taxis and airport shuttles are available at the airport.


On Tuesday morning, June 12th, you’ll have the opportunity to tour Tombstone, AZ and the Kartchner Caverns.

Tombstone is like taking a trip back to the Old West. Called by some “The West’s Most Famous Town,” Tombstone, Arizona, was founded in 1877 when word spread of a silver strike.

The famous Gunfight at the OK Corral occurred in Tombstone in 1881. At its peak the town’s population was estimated between 15 and 20 thousand people with more than one hundred saloons, many restaurants, schools, churches and one of the first public swimming pools in Arizona. (It’s still used today.)

Kartchner Caverns State Park Rotunda Tour. This tour is a half of a mile in length and takes approximately an hour and a half to complete, 50 minutes of which is underground. Discover the role that water plays in creating the caverns. You will see the discoverers’ original trail, 45,000-year-old bat guano, delicate formations and “Kubla Khan,” the largest column formation in Arizona.

The cost is $125 per person and includes lunch and a snack.

EVENING ACTIVITIES (All members and vendors are encouraged to attend)


The Welcome reception and dinner will be held in the Stadium Club located in the University of Arizona’s Football Stadium. The Ron Athey award will be presented to this years recipient after dinner. The Cres Cor giveaway winner will be also be drawn after the dinner.


Wednesday’s reception and dinner will be held in old Tucson.

From daring gunfights and stunts to rip-roarin’ musical revues and comedies to panning for gold, Old Tucson offers exciting Old West entertainment and activities for your group. Take a guided tour highlighting our scenery and movie history. Get gussied up in some old-fashioned duds for an old-time photo or shop for gifts and mementos in our fine stores. Take a miniature train ride into the beautiful Sonoran Desert. Set a spell in the Grand Palace Saloon. And be sure to enjoy our famous mesquite-grilled barbecue dishes at Big Jake’s.


Thursday’s dinner will be at the Pima Air & Space Museum. The dinner will be held indoors beside the legendary SR-71 Blackbird.

The Pima Air & Space Museum, located in Tucson, Arizona, is one of the world’s largest non-government funded aerospace museums. The museum features a display of nearly 300 aircraft spread out over 80 acres on a campus occupying 127 acres.
