Join the National Club Association at two of New York’s finest city clubs for a welcome dinner to kick off the 2012 National Club Conference. The evening will begin with a cocktail hour and multi-course dinner at the New York Athletic Club, overlooking Central Park.

Founded in 1868, the New York Athletic Club boasts a unique history. The Club's founding premise was to bring structure to a sporting environment that lacked organization and unity. Soon after its inception, the NYAC organized the first US championships in boxing, wrestling and outdoor track and field. Today, the New York City Club House stands in tribute to an unmatched athletic history and an on-going commitment to the pursuit of sporting excellence.
