NACA hosts a National Convention each February. This high-profile, high-energy, four-day event provides networking opportunities with other professionals, students and associate members. Attracting more than 2,000 delegates from nearly 450 member schools, NACA’s National Convention is the nation's largest campus activities marketplace.
During the Convention, delegates can view more than 80 live performances ranging from music and comedy to lecture and interactive programs. Educational programs focus on topics such as professional and student leadership development, programming, multicultural education, campus organization dynamics and advising, and identification of current trends in the field of campus activities. These programs also include Featured Speakers in targeted areas of professional development. NACA’s Campus Activities Marketplace gives students and staff the ability to meet member agents and artists face to face, enhancing familiarity with the marketplace and facilitating campus bookings.
NACA’s seven regional conferences also feature talent showcases, educational programs and the Campus Activities Marketplace, while offering unique opportunities for networking, information sharing and educational activities.
