National Association for College Admission Counseling National Conference
Sep 22–24, 2016
Greater Columbus Convention Center
CHALLENGES Renovations at the Greater Columbus Convention Center have kept the planning team on their toes leading up to the big event. “Fortunately, we have been working with the convention-center team along the way,” said Shannon Burke, CMP, NACAC’s director of conference and meetings, “and are building our plan to make the construction fade into the background when we arrive in September.”
INITIATIVES NACAC stays on point by leaving space in the meeting agenda for emerging issues within education. “Each year, we walk a fine line of attempting to cover all necessary educational topics while leaving space for the last-minute hot topics that come up over the summer and at the beginning of the school year,” Burke said. “So we’re currently waiting for something huge to come up.” This year’s meeting will also include a bring-your-own-tech workshop on the show floor.
