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, we recognize that members may have questions and concerns related to the COVID-19 pandemic and that some members may not be able to join us in person. For more information, please visit the COVID-19 Information webpage. NCA will be following relevant local laws and guidelines in hosting the Annual Convention and will adjust plans based on changes in these laws and guidelines. NCA strongly recommends that all attendees be vaccinated prior to traveling to the convention. Anyone experiencing symptoms of illness should not travel to the convention or should quarantine in their room until obtaining a negative COVID-19 test.
We look forward to seeing you soon in Seattle for our exploration of "Renewal and Transformation." If you are unable to travel, please join us for our live-streamed sessions. Registration will not be required to view these sessions. These sessions will include the Opening Session focused on Indigenous Peoples; the Carroll C. Arnold Distinguished Lecture delivered by Tina M. Harris, Louisiana State University; the Saturday afternoon Presidential Address delivered by 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); and two special sessions, one focusing on countering anti-Asian violence and one exploring alternative academic careers. Additional details about these exciting events and information about how to access them will be shared soon.
