HELLO NACA® Northeast!
Life is made up moments. Every day we wake up and experience one thing after the next. Separately they are just a small blip on the radar. Together, moments make up a minute, minutes make up an hour, hours make up a day, days turn into years and so on and so forth. As student programmers, college and university staff members, and associate members you are helping to create these moments for not only yourselves, but the community in which you live and work.
This year’s conference theme for NACA® Northeast is “Create the Moment” because the 2017 conference committee believes that is exactly what we do in our various roles. As a student you do this through the leadership roles you assume on campus and the surrounding community. As staff you help to shape moments through your guidance and collaborations, and as associates you are providing the tools and resources to make these moments different, creative, and memorable. Working together these three components create an experience that brings a sense of community to campus, as well as education for all those present.
In November, you will have the opportunity to attend sessions, listen to and meet featured speakers and performers, learn from the best in the business and share your challenges and successes. All of these experiences will help you return to your campus with different ideas, perspectives, knowledge, and insights, helping you to continue to create an environment that is positive, inclusive, and welcoming on your campus’ and businesses.
Our portal is here to help you and your delegation as you begin preparation for this year’s conference. Whether this is your first time attending or your tenth, it is our hope that this site will serve as a valuable resource to you, answering any and all questions that may arise in order to create a memorable experience at the NACA Northeast Regional Conference.
We continue to value the relationships with the schools and associate members that attend our conference each year and hope that you share your experiences with us online! Connect with us to share, and find updates leading up to and during the conference.

Life is made up of moments; help to create positive ones, be present, and enjoy.
