The 51st NTPA Convention and Awards Banquet will be held Friday and Saturday, December 2-3, 2022 at the Marriott Columbus Northwest in Dublin, Ohio. This is the same location as the preceding banquet in 2021.
Tickets for the NTPA Awards Banquet ($50) and the NTPA Appreciation Breakfast ($15) may be purchased online at any time here. Tickets may also be obtained by calling the NTPA office at (614) 436-1761. In all cases, tickets will be distributed at the on-site registration desk throughout the weekend.
In 2022, there will be no Tech Official School or Entry Clerk School hosted the Friday before the banquet. Dates for those schools will be released when they are available, but the first school can be expected in early 2023.
Saturday's lineup will kick off with the annual Appreciation Breakfast (8 a.m.) where NTPA sponsors and supporters will be recognized. Directly following is the Membership Programs Meeting (9:30 a.m.), in which member benefits and annual NTPA programs will be discussed, followed by the Championship Pulling Seminar (10 a.m.). The evening program will start with the banquet dinner at 6 p.m. before the Awards Ceremony begins at 7:45 p.m.
Those wishing to donate an item to the scholarship raffle and auction are encouraged to let the NTPA office know ahead of time; however, all donations will happily be accepted on the day of the event. All bids will close at 7:45 p.m. at the start of the Awards Ceremony, and winners of these items will be announced during the ceremony. All proceeds from the scholarship raffle/auction will benefit the WPI Scholarship fund, which annually awards scholarships to members or affiliates of the pulling industry who are either pursuing or planning to pursue higher education.
