How do I secure my hotel room?

Please note: The NC REALTORS® hotel blocks are only available to registered convention attendees. Group blocks will be monitored to confirm all registered attendees.

Does my spouse/guest pay the same registration fee?
When you invite your spouse or guest who is NOT an NCAR member, your spouse/guest will receive the special guest rate listed above. This fee will enable your spouse or guest to attend all convention events, except those that require additional fees, such as continuing education courses and optional activities. If your spouse or guest is an NCAR member, both of you should pay the regular registration fee.

I've seen a logo advertising a code for Twitter. What's that about?
This symbol is called a Hashtag: #. Twitter Hashtags are used to label or categorize Twitter posts. You can use them to follow tweets in real-time on one subject from different Twitter users by putting them on one screen. Very simply, if you are interested in a conversation, event, or topic, you can follow all the tweets with that Hashtag. We have created the Hashtag #ncarconv to make it easier for you to follow tweets about our 2014 convention. Here's how to follow our convention tweets:

  1. To get convention updates, enter the convention hashtag, #ncarconv, into Twitter search or a Twitter application such as Tweetdeck. You will see one page with all of the convention tweets.
  2. To add your own convention tweet, make an entry on your Twitter page and add the convention hashtag, #ncarconv, to the post. Your tweet will then show up on the same page with all of our other convention tweets.
