The NCA 107th Annual Convention in Seattle will take place as a face-to-face meeting. We are excited about the return to our typical convention format. However, the NCA Executive Committee acknowledges that, due to the extraordinary events and concerns related to the Covid-19 pandemic, some members may not be able to join us in person. Consequently, we will provide virtual access to several key events at our November convention. 
We are very pleased to announce that nine sessions will be livestreamed for member access this year. These sessions will include three Convention-wide events: the Thursday afternoon Opening Session focused on Indigenous Peoples, the Friday afternoon Carroll C. Arnold Distinguished Lecture delivered by Dr. Tina M. Harris, Louisiana State University, and the Saturday afternoon Presidential Address delivered by Dr. David T. McMahan, Missouri Western State University, followed by the NCA Awards Presentation. The  four sessions in the “Renewal and Transformation” series (Democracy, Discipline, Disruption, and Dissent) will also be livestreamed. Finally, two special sessions, one focusing on countering anti-Asian violence and one exploring alternative academic careers, will be available. Additional details about these exciting events and information about how to access the sessions will be shared soon.
