On November 2, CNR Director of Student Activities Jason Gloe and four student leaders travelled to Hartford, CT to take part in this year's National Association for Campus Activities (NACA) Northeast Conference. The three-day conference, themed "Create the Moment," gave student activities professionals and student leaders the opportunity to gain professional development experience, network with other professionals, vendors and performers, and hear ideas for programs and events to bring back to campus. The four students representing CNR were Kevona Jackson, senior and Student Government Association vice president, and Cyara Paul, Shaila Eligio, and Ruth Garcia, each a freshman and Ursuline Leader.

Gloe, who served as the special events coordinator on the NACA Northeast Planning Committee, co- presented an education session entitled “Exploring Institutional Types” with Adam Frank, director of student involvement at Westchester Community College. The panel presentation explored different challenges and opportunities encountered while working at various types of colleges and universities.

"I’m thrilled that, with the support of the SGA, I was able to bring four student leaders to this year’s conference," said Gloe. "They were able to attend education sessions focusing on student leadership and campus involvement and also learned about programming strategies from other campuses in the region. NACA is a truly unique experience, and I am happy that I was able to share it with Kevona, Cyara, Shaila, and Ruth."
