Be The Change: 2017 Annual Convention


Join us in San Antonio, Texas, the Alamo City, on June 21–24, 2017 for the largest gathering of plaintiffs' employment lawyers in the country. Together, we will shape the future of employee rights advocacy and fight for equality and justice in the American workplace. The Marriott San Antonio Rivercenter in downtown San Antonio will be our host as we celebrate 32 years of employee rights advocacy.

If you are an EEOC attorney who is not a current NELA Member, please email us at or call us at (415) 296-7629 to take advantage of the special EEOC rate of $575.


San Antonio Marriott Rivercenter

NELA has reserved a limited block of rooms at the San Antonio Marriott Rivercenter, the host hotel for the Annual Convention. The rate is $194 for single/double occupancy (plus applicable state and local taxes). The San Antonio Marriott Rivercenter is located at 101 Bowie Street in San Antonio, Texas. To make hotel reservations, call the hotel directly at (210) 223-1000 or central reservations at (800) 648-4462. To ensure you receive the group rate, identify yourself as part of the “National Employment Lawyers Association” room block. A credit card or deposit equal to one night’s stay is necessary to guarantee hotel reservations. You may also make your reservations online. Reservations must be made no later than 5:00 p.m. (Central) on Sunday, June 4, 2017, in order to receive the group rate. The group rate will be honored three days prior to and after the program dates based on availability.
