2018 NASPA Region I Conference

November 11 - November 14, 2018
Rhode Island Convention Center, Providence, RI


Greetings from the Conference Chair

Welcome to the 2018 Region I Conference Website!

The regional conference has always been a place to come together to learn from one another, reconnect with colleagues and friends, create new relationships, celebrate achievements, and highlight the outstanding work that we are accomplishing as a region.
The beautiful city of Providence, Rhode Island will be the backdrop for our time together. I hope you take advantage of all the conference has to offer, but also take time to explore the city known as the “Creative Capital" to enjoy its abundant educational resources and vibrant arts community.

As we grow as a region, we are always looking for new and innovative ways to engage our members. My team and I will continue the tradition of providing quality programming that will inspire you, energize you, and motivate you to create positive and impactful change on your campuses.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me, or any member of my team, as we are here to provide you with a positive conference experience.
