NACM Credit Congress Offers More Than Great Sessions

This year’s Credit Congress will not only offer attendees an opportunity to
network, grow and improve as credit professionals, but it will also give them
the opportunity to delve into one of the nation’s most culturally rich, and
often overlooked, cities. Often called either "the southernmost northern city"
or "the northernmost southern city," Louisville offers visitors both a quaint
sense of traditional charm and comfort and also a cutting edge, bubbling sense
of innovation. This contrast can be seen in the city’s cuisine, which varies
from classic comfort foods to new age delicacies, as well as the city’s
architecture and culture.

Dozens of world-class restaurants and eateries lie within a short ride of
both the Galt House—the main Credit Congress hotel—and the Kentucky Convention
Center, where a majority of the Congress’ sessions will be held. These include
Mazzoni’s Oyster Café, known for its rolled oysters, Primo, a popular Italian
restaurant, and 4th Street Live!, a collection of restaurants and
nightclubs.

Louisville’s architecture is both elaborately charming in older parts of town
and decidedly modern in others. However, there is sufficient overlap between
both styles that molds the city into a uniquely cohesive experience. Old
Louisville, a cultural district just south of downtown, offers visitors a wide
array of Victorian architecture as well as several shops and local eateries. Old
Louisville also hosts a large student population, making it a lively cultural
spot with occasional concerts and theatre productions held during the
summer.

Just down the street from the Galt House is the West Main District, a popular
cultural center nestled in downtown Louisville. Credit Congress attendees will
have the chance to explore the district’s Museum Row, a collection of museums
located within walking distance of one another, including the Muhammad Ali
Center, the Frazier International History Museum and the Louisville Slugger
Museum.

sessions to be offered at NACM’s 2008 Credit Congress, be sure to pick up a copy
