Wilmington, NC: On October 7-9, travel industry partners in Wilmington and its island beaches will welcome members of the NC Association of Nurse Anesthetists for the 81st Annual NCANA Annual Meeting 2022.  

Approximately 300 attendees are expected to attend the NCANA Annual Meeting 2022. Events will be held at the Wilmington Convention Center and the majority of attendees will stay at the Embassy Suites by Hilton Wilmington Riverfront.

The North Carolina Association of Nurse Anesthetists (NCANA), based in Raleigh, is the healthcare professional organization representing approximately 3,400 Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetists (CRNAs) and student nurse anesthetists. NCANA's goal is to protect and advance nurse anesthesia practice through advocacy and public education, and ensure patient access to safe, cost-effective anesthesia care, especially in rural and other medically underserved areas of the state. 

“We are pleased to welcome back the N.C. Association of Nurse Anesthetists to Wilmington,” states John Sneed, vice-president of sales & services for the Wilmington and Beaches Convention and Visitors Bureau. “We look forward to welcoming NCANA conference attendees with warm hospitality and activities that will enhance their Carolina coastal experience. Our hope is that they will come for the meeting and stay an extra day or two to enjoy all our destination has to offer from the river to the sea.” 

The New Hanover County Tourism Development Authority (TDA), d/b/a Wilmington and Beaches Convention & Visitors Bureau, markets and develops the county and its communities’ leisure and group travel experiences for economic growth and quality of place.
