11th Annual National Conference (NatCon)

January 3-5, 2019

Student Veterans of America (SVA) has opened a Call for Proposals and Reviewers for the 11th Annual National Conference (NatCon). A popular misconception of NatCon is that breakout sessions are restricted solely to veterans or student veteran topics and issues. Actually, NatCon is just as much for the higher education community as it is for the veteran community. This is a great professional development opportunity to potentially present work to a growing and active non-traditional population. A more detailed description of NatCon is at the SVA NatCon 2019 Website.
