Virtual Convention 2016 Recap

This past November, NAA offered for the second consecutive year a Virtual Convention for Afterschool Professionals, which packaged the top-rated workshops from the 2016 NAA Annual Convention and delivered them in a convenient online format.

The vibe at NAA's Annual Convention in Orlando was perfectly aligned with its Superhero theme: From the opening night until the final workshops, the unity, inspiration and energy were amazing! Those who participated left feeling supercharged and filled with powerful inspiration, new skills and strategies for their program.
