2019 National Conference

March 24-26
Texas Hill Country
San Antonio, Texas

For NCMPR’s 2019 national conference, it’s all about branding (and we don’t mean cattle). We’re heading to Texas Hill Country – sprinkled with rolling hills, wildflowers and breathtaking vistas – to inspire BIG ideas for branding two-year community and technical colleges. And that means we need your best practices for steering students to campus.

Yep, NCMPR is rounding up proposals for presentations on topics ranging from recruitment to brand building and from media relations to marketing, graphic design, digital tactics and more. Hop on the BRANDwagon and rustle up your best and brightest ideas to share with colleagues.

The deadline for submitting proposals is May 11.


Types of Presentations

BREAKOUTS: These are one hour in length and allow for in-depth coverage of the topic and time for Q and A.

ROUNDTABLES: These are 30-minute, small-group discussions that give presenters time to hit the highlights and participants a chance to share their own ideas, all in a more informal setting. Roundtable presenters will be asked to repeat their sessions three times.

PRE-CONFERENCE INTENSIVES: These are three hours in length and are designed as hands-on, interactive presentations that provide detailed, how-to information about the subject matter. These sessions are offered on the morning of the conference's opening day.

IMPORTANT! Read the submission guidelines for details about subject areas and specific topics that are being requested.

Whether you prefer outdoor recreation or big-city culture, you’ll find something to love about Texas Hill Country. This part of the Lone Star State is known for its rolling hills, scenic rivers and lakes, and unique small towns that have their own stories to tell. Perched on its southern edge is San Antonio, a major city in south-central Texas with a rich colonial heritage. It’s home to the Alamo, an 18th-century Spanish mission preserved as a museum and the site of an infamous 1836 battle for Texan independence from Mexico. It’s also known for its famed River Walk, a miles-long pedestrian promenade lined with cafes and shops.

Conference headquarters is the Hyatt Regency Hill Country. Nestled on 300 acres of historic ranch land and located just 20 minutes from the San Antonio airport and River Walk, it offers a unique blend of countryside relaxation, casual elegance and Texas-sized hospitality.
