Baltimore a.k.a. “Charm City” is made up of 262 parks stretched across more than 4,600 acres and an additional 1,200 acres of urban wilderness — the second largest in the United States. Combine that with the rich American history, the diversity in their more than 225 neighborhoods, a booming art scene, the Inner Harbor and all of its attractions, and, of course, their world-famous blue crabs, and there is no wonder why it is the perfect location for the 2019 NRPA Annual Conference.

Mark your calendars now for three days filled with lively networking activities, inspirational sessions, a look at the most innovative products in the field, and of course, a whole lot of fun!
