The National Stuttering Association Annual Conference is a gathering of adults, children, families, and friends who share stuttering as a common bond.
During our days together, we’ll be educated, motivated, and challenged. We’ll be moved as we listen to stories from people who stutter and as we share our own stories, perhaps for the first time.
Most importantly, we’ll realize how amazing it is to belong to a very special community of caring souls who understand exactly how stuttering impacts one’s life.
Travel & Hotel
Chicago has two airports to choose from and our downtown Conference hotel is near Magnificent Mile shopping, Navy Pier, and Millennium Park.
Over 100 sessions will cover a wide-range of topics to help adults and kids/teens in their journey of self-acceptance, self-confidence and fulfilling life’s goals.
Tours & Excursions
We are arranging exciting and family-friendly adventures to Chicago landmarks, sporting events, and other fun cultural happenings.
Financial assistance is available for people who stutter wanting to attend our Annual Conference.
Marriott Harbor Beach Resort & Spa
It’s never too early to start planning for our 2019 Annual Conference in Ft. Lauderdale, FL, taking place July 3-7! We are expecting our largest attendance ever, in part because of the prime beachside location of the luxurious Marriott Harbor Beach Resort & Spa.
