The 2014 NWTA Convention/Reunion will be held in Oak Ridge/Knoxville, TN at the Hilton Inn Downtown Knoxville, beginning on Thursday, Sept 18th thru Saturday, Sept 20th.
We have trips planned to the Oak Ridge National Laboratory, with tours of the lab, lunch and visits to the Y12 plant, and other sites where the materials to build the first weapons were created. A stop at the American Museum of Science & Energy follows, and of course the Hospitality Room will be available. There will be time for leisure also, as the hotel is located in the middle of Knoxville, where shopping and sites are close by.
Convention Registration prices will be the same as last year, with $140 per member, and $125 per guest. The Early Bird discount of 10% will be valid from the day registration opens through August 6th. There will be a special room rate for the hotel, $90 for a large, king bed room. Information on hotel registration is located on the online registration page. Online Registration is now open. You must be logged in to the website in order to register, you will not see the Register Now button unless you are logged in.
Here is a link to the 2014 Convention Tentative Schedule. So save the dates: Sept 18th thru Sept 20th 2014.

What is freedom?
It is our right as American citizens, and it is priceless. There is ultimately one and only one thing defending and preserving our sovereign liberty we hold so precious. Our enemies are relentless. They seek to own us. They seek to overthrow us. They seek to terrorize and destroy us. They think of any possible way to conquer us and they continuously try—perhaps through economic warfare, cyber warfare, information warfare or some other periphery. Terrible as the thought is to them, they even elect to engage us in occasional skirmishes of conventional military combat. So long as they get what they want, they know they can sustain whatever destruction is dealt from such conflicts, save one. They have one final thought that deters them—that one little voice in the deepest recess of their minds that whispers to them in quiet dark and tells them no.
Leave America alone.
