The NHS Convention - Oct. 1st 2016

Note from our convention chairman:

NHS Con-15 will be held on Saturday, October 1, 2016, beginning at 9:00. It will be at the Penn’s View Hotel, located in the historic district. Incidentally, our meeting will precede the Leica meeting scheduled for the following week, so those wishing to attend both can easily do so.

The Photorama Camera Show is scheduled for the following day, October 2, 2016. It will be held at the Ft. Washington Hilton.

Before the meeting, three days of Philadelphia activities, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. Following the meeting and camera show, we’re planning two days of touring outside the city.

Including pre and post activities: Wednesday, September 28 through Tuesday, October 4, 2016.
