NACA® Institutes

Update on 2020 NACA® Institutes

Unfortunately, due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, our in-person NACA® Institutes will be postponed for this summer. NACA is working to reschedule the Summer Leadership Event, which utilizes Disney Youth Education Series (YES) Programs, for a later date and we will communicate any updates as we have them. 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.

While we are disappointed in this outcome, we are also excited to announce the new NACA® Summer Series, which will provide campus professionals and students with live virtual educational opportunities to hone skills and add to their résumés. Learn More
