The BACCHUS Initiatives of NASPA Staff
February 6, 2017
Each spring, volunteer teams from around the country work to coordinate regional spring conferences. Since regional spring conferences are geographically based, they provide a more personalized and relaxed conference setting. Regional conferences also allow peer education groups to expand on presentations from General Assembly as well as network for future collaborations. Applications to host a spring conference in 2018 are now available. We welcome you to attend any of the regional spring conferences if the location or dates are a better fit.
