We’ve made some exciting changes for NAA19, including new educational session formats. If you’ve attended Convention in previous years, or are brand new to NAA, please be sure to review the following information for what you can expect at Convention!

Educational Session Formats

At NAA19, we will offer the following four educational session formats:

Workshop (60 minutes) – These sessions are interactive with hands-on learning experiences, discussions, and activities that involve participants.

Panel (60 minutes - new for NAA19!) – These sessions feature up to three panelists and a moderator who share insights and different perspectives on a specific topic. Panels also include time for audience Q&A.

Spark (30 minutes) – These are quick informational sessions with key takeaways, a short lecture, or a TED Talk-style presentation. Sparks are held at the end of the day, every day.

Leadership Intensive (2 hours) – These sessions take a deep dive into a topic, are focused on leadership and professional development, and are led by experienced trainers and leaders.
