|Northeast Regional Conference 2018|
Join the 2018 NAASS Northeast Regional Conference
Summer Funded, Had Me A Blast
Creating Revenue and Funding Sources While Under-Resourced
Sunday, March 11 – Tuesday, March 13, 2018
The 2018 NAASS Northeast Regional Conference will explore creative and existing ways to find money to drive summer enrollment. Summer Pell funds will be discussed – what is it, how can we use it, and how will it help boost summer enrollment. Other topics will include working with foundations to increase accessibility for precollege learners, working with athletics in the summer, and using social media to drive more full-pay international enrollment.
This year, we will have a “case studies” session, so please bring your most confounding summer issues so your summer colleagues can offer insight and assistance.
