NACA® Programming Board Institute
Programming Basics Institute

June 11-14, 2020

Xavier University (OH)

Audience: Students and Advisors

OVERVIEW

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.

Theme: #PBI2020: New Decade. New Vision.
