ARLINGTON, Texas – The United States Bowling Congress Convention and Annual Meeting heads to the Chicago area in 2021 as the Westin Lombard Yorktown Center in Lombard, Illinois, will be the host hotel for the event.

The 2021 USBC Convention is set for April 26-29, continuing its Monday-Thursday format of the last several years.

Convention delegates, comprised mostly of volunteers from local and state associations throughout the country, have responded through surveys that the weekday schedule is preferred. The schedule assists with rates and accommodations for delegates and their guests.

The USBC Board of Directors recently approved the site selection, as it continues the organization’s commitment to host its annual meeting near a USBC Championships event. The 2021 USBC Women’s Championships will take place at Stardust Bowl in Addison, Illinois, just six miles away.

At the USBC Convention and Annual Meeting, delegates attend educational seminars, hear updates from USBC and industry leaders, and national awards and scholarships, including the National Recognition Awards and Stars of Tomorrow Awards, are presented.

During the Annual Meeting, delegates vote on legislative proposals to bylaws and league and tournament rules, and vote on open positions on the USBC Board of Directors.

The USBC Hall of Fame induction ceremony also is held in conjunction with the national convention.

The 2020 USBC Convention will take place April 27-30 at The Orleans in Las Vegas.
