Keynote Speaker

Dan Meers at Arrowhead Stadium
Dan Meers

NCRA is pleased to announce that Dan Meers — perhaps better known as KC Wolf, the mascot for the Kansas City Chiefs, 2024 Super Bowl Champions — will be the speaker for the Premier Session. Meers is a motivational speaker who shares his passion for life which covers the good, the bad, and the scary — the last being a 2013 stunt that went wrong when he plummeted 75 feet before crashing into the stadium seats. After nine days in the hospital, he was released to begin a long road to recovery. The Premier Session is held Friday morning of the Conference.
