NAIA-SIDA Convention Information | Register Here
The NAIA-SIDA Board is excited to announce the schedule for our annual Divisional Day within the CoSIDA Convention. It's our goal each year to provide you the opportunity to grow as a professional through networking and panels that help us learn how to do our jobs better on our campuses. Over the past few years we have learned that charging our membership an extra fee to attend the NAIA-SIDA Workshop has created some concern and we wanted to make sure you knew where those funds were going.
