Annual Conference

Each year, NNLSO hosts its annual meeting in conjunction with the annual meeting of the American Association of Collegiate Registrars and Admissions Officers (AACRAO).  This provides our members the opportunity for professional development, not only through sessions slated by NNLSO, but also general interest AACRAO sessions.  For full details of the AACRAO Annual Meeting and to register, visit the AACRAO Annual Meeting site.
