NCA provides a number of opportunities for students who are planning to participate in the NCA Annual Convention. Below are some links to consider. 

  • Student volunteer opportunities, which provide free convention registration to a limited number of students in exchange for volunteer work completed during the convention. For more information, visit the Volunteer Information page*All student members must have a student membership current through December 1. ALL VOLUNTEER POSITIONS HAVE BEEN FILLED. Please contact Will Eichhorn to join the waiting list. Priority on the waiting list will be given to students who have already registered for the convention. If you have previously registered, and secure a volunteer position, you will receive a refund of your convention registration.
  • A limited number of discounted student rooms available at a 25 percent reduced rate at the Westin. The discounted student rooms will be assigned on a random lottery basis. For more information, visit the Hotel and Travel page. Deadline to submit has been extended to October 22.
