Let us take the hassle out of training this summer! Summer Essentials is a virtual education package that focuses on the basics – the essentials of Programming, Student Government, and Student Organization Advising. Through an on-demand package of recorded sessions and ready-to-download resources, students and campus professionals will have the opportunity to learn in a virtual environment. The on-demand nature of the program provides flexibility for you to use the materials when it best fits your timeline and use with multiple student leaders and professional staff.

For one price, NACA members will receive access to at least 12 recorded sessions. Topics covered will include working with contracts, event planning basics, writing legislation, parliamentary procedure, assessment, and more. Sessions will be appropriate for both student and advisor audiences. 

Program Cost

  • Members: $299
  • Non-members: $375
One registration covers your institution, so all your student leaders and staff can access the on-demand suite for one fee. 

On-Demand Platform
Details on accessing the on-demand platform (which is the same software that powers the NACA App for NACA Conferences & NACA Live), will be included in your registration confirmation. Access content from a web browser or mobile device. You'll have the ability to watch on-demand, download resources, and connect & brainstorm with fellow program participants.
