NCAN’s 2015 National Conference, “Leading the Way from College Access to Attainment,” will take place September 28-30 at the beautiful Loews Portofino Bay Hotel located on the property of Universal Studios in Orlando, FL. We've got a great lineup of professional development workshops, networking, and exciting plenary speakers. What will make the conference special this year?

  • Plenary remarks from Mr. David Coleman, president and CEO of College Board
  • “Where Are They Now?” A panel of alumni from founding NCAN member programs
  • Six fundraising workshops, the most we’ve ever offered
  • Local college tours
  • $179 per night hotel room rates
  • Just 1.9 miles to Hogsmead 
  • Group registration discounts
  • Demos of Khan Academy’s new SAT prep tools and the ACT Profile (both free to students)
  • The latest on trends in texting, data management, 21st century skills, advocacy, virtual mentoring, collective impact, and more
  • Networking with other nonprofits, higher ed institutions, K-12 schools, government representatives, foundations, and researchers
