2015 NACC Annual Conference

Downtown St. John's
This year’s Annual Conference for the National Association of Career Colleges in Canada was located in St. John’s, Newfoundland, and the theme was “Rock Solid Education”.

The conference started at one of the oldest, well-known pubs, called the Yellow Belly Brewery & Pub, where numerous members of the NACC (including schools and exhibitors) got “Screeched” in and became honorary Newfoundlanders!  This process included taking a shot of Screech rum, kissing a cod and performing a short recitation.  Many of us went home with a certificate proving that we are indeed honorary Newfoundlanders!

Day two was started in the Exhibit Hall (where we were, of course!) for a hot breakfast, followed by a lot of great sessions including a word from the CEO of the NACC and many other well-respected companies.  We were lucky enough to have Paul Davis, the Premier of Newfoundland & Labrador, as our keynote speaker, a delicious gala dinner and entertainment – traditional Newfoundland music with Jim Payne and Fergus O’Brien.

Not only was the conference a success, it brought a lot of individuals to Newfoundland and it was great to meet a lot of new leaders in the industry as well as catch up with our valued clients.

Besides the conference itself, some highlights of the trip included walking up to Signal Hill, driving out to Cape Spear and seeing the famous lighthouse, enjoying the nightlife that George Street had to offer, and seeing a large iceberg!

Check out our pictures below, and we hope to see you next year!
