Join your fellow colleagues at the 2019 NCMPR District 2 fall conference in the beautiful mountains of North Carolina as we explore numerous ways to rise to the challenge of two-year college marketing and communication with new approaches and best practices.

The conference will take place in Asheville, a city renowned for its vibrant arts scene, fantastic brew pubs, culinary delights and the elegant Biltmore Estate.
