UPDATE ON HUGE LEADERSHIP WEEKEND 2020

Unfortunately, due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, our in-person NACA® Institutes will be postponed for this summer. This includes the 2020 Huge Leadership Weekend. We are grateful to the many volunteers who have worked diligently to prepare for these programs and saddened the Institutes will not occur this summer.

WHAT IS HUGE LEADERSHIP WEEKEND?

Audience: Students, New and Seasoned Professional Staff
