Region I, though geographically dispersed over a large landmass is definitely mighty in spirit. Members of Region I have made it a tradition to get together during the annual conference for an all-region dinner outing. Regional conferences are typically hosted on-site at the host campus and over the past few years, two-year and community college members have come together for drive-in meetings and conferences. As with many regions, t-shirt swapping and sticker sharing is highly encouraged at regional and annual conferences

Region 8 is GR8! Region 8 is the Mid-Atlantic Region, ranging from Virginia north to Pennsylvania. We are a medium-sized region full of character and made up of a close knit community of professionals, graduate and undergraduate members. We have traditionally held a Regional Conference between late February to early April. Traditions for undergraduates at the Regional Conference include the Returning Orientation Leader Institute (ROLI), an undergraduate case study competition and the swag swap. For professional and graduate staff, Region 8 aims to hold one drive-in event each fall and a NODA grad intern meet-up each summer. We are also working to enhance the professional experiences available during, as well as outside of, the regional conference. It is no surprise that “Region 8 is GR8!”

The Returning Orientation Leader Institute or ROLI, originated in Region IX and is now a staple at all regional conferences throughout the country.
