Take a 7-letter word for a car that you don't want to drive today. Change the first letter to get somebody you'd find at an NPL convention.
Yesterday's answer: COLOR ("hue") + ADO ("hue") => COLORADO. This year's convention is in Englewood, CO, outside Denver. There's another well-known convention in Denver this summer, the Democratic National Convention.
Note: I changed this puzzle. It was originally COLOR ("influence") + ADO ("fuss"), but I thought of the better version right after I shut down my laptop.
