Over 300 attendees are expected to attend the National Association for Advancement of Colored People’s 80th Texas State Conference held in Killeen Oct. 12-14.
The conference will be hosted at three main locations including Central Texas College, Shilo Inn & Suites and the Killeen Civic & Convention Center.
Registration for the event costs $90 and interested attendees can pay in advance online at txnaacp.prg or register on site the first day of the conference.
TaNeika Driver-Moultrie, an executive committee member for the Killeen NAACP chapter, said the chapter is excited and engaged on creating one of the best conference the NAACP has ever had.
