Welcome from Boise, Idaho.
The Idaho T2 Center at LHTAC is hosting this year’s NLTAPA National Conference. In cooperation with the National Local Technical Assistance Program Association (NLTAPA) and NLTAPA Region 9, the Idaho T2 Center at LHTAC would like to invite you to attend the 2013 National LTAP/TTAP Annual Conference, July 22-25, 2013 at the Grove Hotel, Boise, ID.

Along with the many informative workshops and interesting speakers, we are offering a Taste of Boise at our special Networking events:
Monday night Reception – will be held at the Basque Block.
Located in the heart of Boise’s Downtown, the Basque Block is part of the Basque Cultural Center which is a gathering place for both Basque and non-Basques alike. You’ll also be able to visit the Basque Museum and see the rich history of the Basque people in the Boise area. Tapas will be served in traditional Basque style – such as paella and Basque meatballs. Three local wineries will offer a tasting, as well as products for sale.
Wednesday night Banquet – will be held at the Boise Depot.
The Boise Depot is a beautiful, historic Spanish-style structure operated by the Boise Parks & Recreation Department as a public meeting space and historic site. Designed by New York architects, the building opened in 1925 to elaborate fanfare in the capital city. With a splendid panoramic view of the Boise Front, the building grounds include Platt Gardens, a lovely park with pathways, a gazebo and a koi pond which makes this a popular site for public gatherings.
Dinner will be presented by Kanak Attack Katering – a local favorite. Main entrées will include Chicken, Beef Brisket and Salmon, along with all the accompaniments. Music and dancing will follow.
