NCA Adopts New Badge Process

NCA is adopting a new badging and check-in system for this year’s convention. NCA will no longer mail convention badges to pre-registrants. Upon completion of your registration online, you will receive a confirmation email with a bar code. Please save the confirmation email and either 1). print the email and bring a copy with you to Chicago or 2). have the bar code accessible on your mobile device. All pre-registrants will scan their bar code in Chicago to print their badge on demand. The new process is very similar to airport check-in but in a good way! We are optimistic that this system will not only save the association printing, mailing and postage costs but also substantially reduce the amount of paper stock used. If you have any questions regarding the new badging process, please email the convention team.
