One of members who has passed gathered history of the NHLBC. The information here is thanks to the efforts of Frank Garner - New Jersey.
Our first conversion was in 1971 in St. Louis. 30 attendees from four Clubs laid the foundation for what we are today. The second Convention in Detroit saw attendance more than double to sixty-nine and we continued to grow from there. 1976 in Buffalo had a record 500 attendees. That record still stands today.
In 1979, the first Canadian booster club attended, Winnipeg. In 1981, they also became the first Canadian city to host a Convention.
