Pizza Party & Talent Show on Sunday, July 28th -- After three days full of educational workshops, professional development and entertainment, why not join NAAFA for what promises to be one of the most fun events of the convention. Think you got talent? Then this is your chance to shine.
Pool Party on Sunday, July 28th -- The desert gets hot in the summer, so we'll wait for Mother Nature to turn off the lights and then hit the pool for a little refreshing dive in the pool.
