As the 2019 NBA Conference, scheduled to hold on 23–29 August 2019 at EKO Hotels & Suites, Victoria Island, Lagos, fast approaches, Conference frenzy appears to be gradually setting in. Some lawyers from across the country have been asking the following questions — 1⃣ Has collection/distribution of 2019 NBA Conference materials begun? 2⃣If not, what time would collection of the Materials commence?3⃣ Where is the Venue for Collection/distribution of the Conference Materials?
DISTRIBUTION & COLLECTION OF CONFERENCE MATERIALS for the NBA-AGC 2019 would commence on Friday, 23 August 2019, and run through Sunday, 25 August 2019. Information to this effect is conspicuously displayed on the CONFERENCE PROGRAM, as published on https://nbaconference.com/index.php/provisional-programme/. You may wish to visit the site for more details.
VENUE FOR COLLECTION OF CONFERENCE MATERIALS is Harbour Point Hotels, 4 Wilmot Point Road, Off Ahmadu Bello Way, Victoria Island, Lagos
Meanwhile, all registered Delegates are entitled to have, and indeed would have their usual Conference materials. But this time, in the NBA-AGC 2019, the TCCP has gone a step further, by taking reasonable steps to avoid all errors and complaints of the past. The plan is to ensure that all registered delegates get their conference materials in good time. This accords with the advertised theme for the Conference: FACING THE FUTURE! The future is about being proactive, effective and efficient. As John C. Maxwell puts it, “if you’re proactive, you focus on preparing; if you’re reactive, you end up focusing on repairing.”
The TCCP is working along the wise words of author Nora Roberts who said in the book, Morrigan’s Cross, “[we] know what you want, [we] work to get it, but then [you have to] value it once you have it.” The overall aim it to change what we can and manage what we can’t, with a view to giving Nigerian Lawyers and other NBA-AGC 2019 delegates a history-making and memory-stimulating Conference?
We eagerly look forward to welcoming you to Lagos on 23 August 2019. Have a safe, smooth journey.
