The Stars at Night…… Are big and bright (clap, clap, clap, clap) Deep in the Heart of Texas! And that’s where NADOA will be in September for the 44th Annual Institute! That’s right, we are heading to the Hyatt Regency Lost Pines Resort and Spa outside of Austin, Texas where you will be able to see those stars up in the big Texas sky! Or maybe you will want to sit under a big oak tree along the Colorado River. At night you can gather around a fire pit and make s’mores with friends under those stars! There’s plenty to do at this beautiful resort. Golfing, swimming, floating on the Crooked River, kayaking, horseback riding, spa treatments…so much to do! Remember that the special rates we get for Institute at Lost Pines are good the weekend before and after, so plan on bringing your family,

your spouse, your significant other and enjoy some good ol’ Texas hospitality!

The Institute Committee is already hard at work planning this year’s program and it will be one you won’t want to miss. NADOA is known in the industry for having top notch educational programs at Institute. We hope you will be eager to join all of us at Lost Pines September 6-8 as we get “Back to our Roots – Deep in the Heart of Texas!”
