Why do schools love APCA?
Why do schools love APCA? The best way to find out is ask the schools representatives! Below is just a few of the reasons schools love APCA.
“APCA is a fantastic experience for any institution. Large, medium, and small schools can all benefit from what APCA has to offer. Through my years of attending their conferences I have enhanced my knowledge as a student affairs professional, further developed my student leaders, and saved thousands of university dollars through block booking with neighboring institutions. It’s an unbeatable opportunity.”
Kedrick Nicholas, McNeese State University | Sapphire member, 15 years
"The APCA Student/Advisor Workshop in NYC was an amazing experience for my students and myself. I have been in the field for 10 years and it is not often that I am this refreshed and eager to take on a new year after a conference. The speakers were fantastic and to the point. The staff that coordinated the event could not have been nicer or more welcoming. Overall, it was one of the best conference experiences I have ever had."
Rohry Flood - Director of Student Life
"I would encourage all colleges to attend APCA. It's worth every penny! The staff are extremely friendly and make everyone feel a part of the APCA family. APCA is a great opportunity to see very talented performers from all walks of life and block booking helps to place them in a price range that we can afford. And the Northeast region ROCKS when it comes to partnering to bring acts to the area!"
Nancy Agan - Director of Student Life
"I cannot describe how excited my students are every year for the APCA Conference. With the discounts that we get from the Co-op buying process, we are able to save enough money to pay for the entire conference experience. Beyond that, however, it’s great to be able to work with the other schools in our area in a synergistic way. My students have developed great relationships with their peers at other schools as a result of the experience.”
Jeff Foote - Director of Student Life SUNY Cobleskill | Sapphire Member, 14 Years
"I have been a member of APCA for the past 16 years. During this time, the APCA staff has always been helpful and supportive of my program. They have provided a safe, affordable way for us (Student Activities Directors) to network with agents, share ideas between schools, and book performers. I am always impressed with their professionalism and creativity at the National Conferences year after year. They have never hesitated to help me when I have needed advice or had questions regarding programing or contractual issues. I would wholeheartedly recommend any school to join APCA."
