Networking at a conference is never easy. But this is an NCSL Conference! Throughout the conference, you’ll find it easy to build your network with other NCSL participants and make new acquaintances! Don’t miss these opportunities:

    • Attend a session in the Networking workshop block to sharpen your skills
    • Try to meet at least three new people at the Networking Reception on Friday night
    • Use the app to share your profile and connect with new friends
    • Take advantage of the breaks between sessions to keep interesting conversations going

Open Mic!

It’s your time to step up to the mic and show us who you are! Bring your talents to the NCSL open mic and show off your voice, flow, musical ability, or other skills! Event will be hosted by your conference emcee, Jonathan Cabrera. Bring whatever you need to shine!
