2018 NACRO ANNUAL CONFERENCE
Location: Atlanta, GA
Dates: Tuesday, July 24 - Thursday, July 26, 2018
The 2018 NACRO conference was held in Atlanta, Georgia on July 24 -26, 2018 at the Hyatt Regency Atlanta Downtown. Over 350 university and industry attendees descended on Atlanta in late July for our 2018 NACRO Annual Conference. Those that attended the Professional Development offerings of Bootcamp and Mastery Sessions enjoyed the beautiful Emory University campus and then the remainder of the conference convened at the Hyatt Regency in Downtown Atlanta. We heard about university, industry and local community and government collaborations from our opening keynote. Attendees had a choice of concurrent sessions throughout the two days that featured topics such as corporate tiering, diversity and inclusion, measuring, and what mergers and acquisitions mean to corporate relations. We had speakers from many of our university representatives as well as industry speakers from Intel, GE, AT&T, Northrop Grumman, Georgia-Pacific and Equifax.
One of the conference highlights as always included networking activities such as an evening at the College Football Hall of Fame where you could find someone facing the same challenge as you and then perhaps kick a field goal or toss a beanbag in a game of cornhole. Attendees also took advantage of the large number of corporate headquarters in the Atlanta area and visited Coca-Cola, Porsche Consulting and AGCO-GSI just to name a few. The goal of the NACRO Annual Conference is to share best practices and opportunities to collaborate between university and industry.
