What's going on?

Fontana Village, NC

Welcome to the Smokies!

Many of you have asked, “What’s going on with Fall Creek Falls?” And yes, the rumors are true, Fall Creek Falls is getting a face lift! The current Fall Creek Falls Conference Center will be demolished in 2018, then rebuilt.  Here’s a link for the article, or click here for a pdf of the article. 

Your hard working BRI Board Members are on it and have quickly responded.  A committee of 3 Board Members was formed to assess the short notice relocation.  They found 4 options and narrowed it to 2 solid potential sites. After careful research and consideration (picture here board members driving the mountain roads, rocking on porches and hiking a few scenic trails).

Fate is on our side because we have located an AMAZING location for our 2018 BRI Conference. Here’s the skinny…Fontana Village in North Carolina is the site of our 2018 Conference, and it’s AWESOME!
