Buon giorno a tutti! No, this year’s NCAN conference isn’t in Italy, but you’ll feel like you’ve been transported there at Loews Portofino Bay Hotel in Orlando. It’s still six months away but we are already knee-deep in planning the 20th anniversary NCAN conference, and registration will launch the week of May 11. The conference will take place September 28-30, 2015, and here’s what you can look forward to:

  • Engaging and informative conference plenary speakers like David Coleman, President and CEO of the College Board. Mr. Coleman’s remarks will focus on equity and access to postsecondary education, including College Board’s resources and strategies that are aimed specifically at low income students.
  • An increased number of sessions focused on fundraising including individual giving and board development. These sessions are relevant to executive and program directors, as well as anyone else who is charged with resource development.
  • Great conference sessions that will offer learning and networking opportunities. We received more than 230 workshop proposals this year, a record number, so we know that attendees will be hearing from presenters selected through an extremely competitive process.
  • A celebration of NCAN’s 20 years of Building Connections, Advancing Equity and Promoting Success. You’ll hear from some of NCAN’s nine founding members, as well as former students who have benefitted from the passion and dedication NCAN’s member program staff.
  • An amazing hotel experience where you can dine al fresco, relax on a gondola ride at the end of the day, or spend your evenings at Universal Studios which is only a seven minutes away by boat.
