IMPORTANT: We are excited to announce that we are growing our exhibits, sponsorship, and advertising opportunities for NCA Annual Conventions. For NCA, this change provides us with an opportunity to provide our partners with increased opportunities for engagement, brand awareness, and ways to share their product or service with the communications community.

We are delighted to introduce our new exhibit and advertising sales team, Profitable Association Inc. (PAI). For more than 20 years, PAI has helped associations like ours develop, manage, and execute their non-dues revenue programs while providing a high level of service and support to its customers. As an NCA partner, PAI looks forward to engaging with you, our valued supporting organizations.

Heather McKean and Lindsay Skender will be leading the effort for PAI on behalf of NCA. You can reach Heather and Lindsay at sales@natcom.org.
