The NCBA CLE has obtained this special room rate by contracting a total meeting package at the Kiawah Island Golf Resort. We must meet certain minimum hotel room requirements or face attrition and/or meeting room rental charges. To continue to provide reasonable CLE registration fees, we need your help. Please take advantage of this negotiated room rate.

Just over the horizon form historic Charleston, an island of spectacular beauty rests between the winding Kiawah River and a pristine stretch of Atlantic Ocean beach. Nestled into this tranquil landscape, Kiawah Island Golf Resort welcomes you to an ambiance of elegant ease and relaxation enhanced in every aspect by the resort’s hospitable staff. Visitors can enjoy the serenity of ten miles of pristine beach, 30 miles of paved bike trails and a variety of nature programs. They may also chose to challenge their game on the resort’s award winning tennis courts or championship golf courses including The Ocean Course, home of the 2012 PGA Championship.       

For thousands of years, eagles, egrets and other natural residents of Kiawah have enjoyed its lush, semi-tropical environment while remaining sheltered from the world. Today, Kiawah Island remains a haven for those who stay. However, the reasons for visiting have become more varied. From ten miles of romantic, unspoiled beach to 30 miles of paved, biking trails. From kayaking and canoeing adventures to alligator and birding walks. From oceanfront fine dining to riverside oyster roasts.
