Get ready to be dazzled as the National Stuttering Association returns to Atlanta for the NSA/ISA World Congress joint conference, July 6-10, 2016 with our 2-day Clinical Symposium July 5-6!

In 2016, our conference joins up with the International Stuttering Association World Congress and head to the prettiest city in the Southeast – Atlanta, Georgia. Atlanta uniquely blends southern hospitality with a modern, cosmopolitan touch.  One of the most booming regions in the country, Atlanta hosted the 1996 Olympic Games and is home to some of the largest companies in all the world.

Our hotel is the spectacular Hyatt Regency Atlanta, located right in the heart of downtown. This property boasts all of the amenities that you have come to expect from an NSA conference – a pool, gym, and even the only revolving rooftop restaurant in the city! Easily accessible by mass-transit, the hotel is just a half hour direct MARTA ride from Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport.  You will want to make your hotel reservations early to ensure space and the best deal available.

Making this year extra special the NSA is host to the International Stuttering Association’s World Congress. Founded in 1995, the International Stuttering Association (ISA) is a not-for-profit, international umbrella association made up primarily of national self-help associations for people who stutter. Their mission is to improve the conditions of all those whose lives are affected by stuttering in all countries. Their vision speaks truth for all of us; A World That Understands Stuttering. For more information visit the ISA website.

When visiting Atlanta, you will never find yourself short of things to do, because it’s all here, and just steps outside the hotel. If you have the itch to do some shopping, head over to Buckhead and Phipps Plaza, home to the trendiest malls featuring all of the major brand names. If pushing yourself to your physical limits is what gets your blood pumping, head out for a run in scenic Piedmont Park. If the nightlife is what you’re after, Underground Atlanta has your number, with an extensive selection of restaurants and bars to congregate at.  Close by, situated in the heart of downtown at Peachtree Street and International Boulevard, Peachtree Center Mall is connected to our conference hotel, the Hyatt Regency Atlanta, by a covered walkway and boasts studios, galleries, and a variety of shops and food options at all price points.

Of course, Atlanta is known for some dynamite family attractions, as well. Check out the World of Coca-Cola and discover everything from how the taste is in different countries to the fiercely-protected secret formula. The Atlanta Zoo is home to some incredibly exotic animals and even some adorable pandas who are just begging to have their picture taken. If it’s all things media that you crave, you won’t want to miss the opportunity to take the CNN tour, and get an up close and personal look at one of the largest networks in the world.   Seeking a bit more excitement?  Take a tram to the very top of Stone Mountain and view the breathtaking Atlanta skyline or head to the ballpark to check out the Atlanta Braves in their last season at Turner Field.  Whatever you decide to do with your free time in Atlanta there will be no shortage of activities and attractions to choose from!
