Meeting Information

We will implement a similar schedule as last year, to minimize the number of days out of school our members need to take. The Board meeting will be on Thursday morning (November 30). Lunch on Thursday will be on your own; there are several options in the immediate area. The general Membership Meeting will begin at 12:00 noon; there will be a variety of presentations, workshops, and sessions throughout the day that will include:

  • Welcoming new Executive Directors
  • Icebreakers and Get Acquainted activities
  • General association business
  • Our members as a valuable resource
  • Roundtables on a variety of topics
  • Region Meetings
  • And much, much, much more!

The membership dinner will be on Thursday evening.

Our 2017 Winter Meeting will resume on Friday (December 1) with a full morning session that includes a working breakfast and a "grab & go lunch". Of course, we encourage you to stick around after that...

Staying for the National Conference on Student Activities?

The 2017 National Conference for Student Activities, presented by NAWD, will follow on Fri-Sun. December 1-3, also at the Hotel RL Spokane.

We encourage all of our members to stick around and join fellow leaders in the field of Student Activities from throughout North America to share great ideas about student activities, hear great speakers, attend (or present) great workshops, and have a great time doing it.

The NCSA represents a unique opportunity for those involved in student activities to share their passion, grow as professionals, and network both formally and informally with others. You'll leave ready to tackle your biggest challenges and serve your student leaders and advisors.
