Learning and Networking With Colleagues from Across the Country

NCMPR's annual national conference, held each March, offers keynote speakers, workshops and roundtable discussions, all focusing on some of the hottest topics and current trends in community college marketing and public relations.

The conference line-up features speakers from within NCMPR's own ranks, along with leaders in the community college movement and communications professionals from the private sector. The national conference provides an excellent opportunity for NCMPR members to connect with colleagues from across the country and get answers to pressing questions.


NCMPR 2019 National Conference
March 24-26
Texas Hill Country-San Antonio

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. 

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.
