UPDATE ON THE 2020 PROGRAMMING BOARD INSTITUTE

Unfortunately, due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, our in-person NACA® Institutes will be postponed for this summer. This includes the 2020 Programming Board Institute. 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 THE PROGRAMMING BOARD INSTITUTE?

Audience: Students and Advisors

The NACA® Programming Board Institute (PBI) is designed to enhance the essential skills that college student programmers need to host events on their campuses while giving advisors an impactful experience that will help them best serve their students. This hands-on, interactive Institute offers all participants the opportunity to develop those essential skills through large group sessions, small group discussions, and on-site event planning. One of the unique experiences PBI offers is that each participant will work with their designated small group to plan and execute an event from start to finish for the entire institute to enjoy on Event Day. As an added bonus, the small groups will be given a budget and time allocated to shop for supplies.
