The NCADA State Conference is one of the country’s premier conferences, allowing athletic directors from across the state and Section III an opportunity to network with their peers and gain insight and motivation to return home to administer programs with new knowledge, information, and enthusiasm.

2021 NCADA State Conference Update 

The Executive Board of the NCADA met this past Friday, 1/15, to discuss our options for 2021.  After much discussion and recommendations, due to the continuing pandemic, we are going to postpone our State Athletic Directors Conference from March 21st until July 18th and try to do a face-to-face program in conjunction with the NCCA (North Carolina Coaches Association) in Greensboro.

The courses offered during the Spring PDA and Summer State Conference will allow athletic administrators an opportunity to earn their CAA certification by July (501, 503, 503, 504, 506). NIAAA Certification


The NIAAA is also offering Spring Webinars online beginning in March. 

To meet the needs of individuals who desire to enhance their knowledge of interscholastic athletic administration and cannot attend the national conference or state conference, the NIAAA seasonally offers selected courses in a webinar format. Our webinars offer the opportunity to take courses from the comforts of the office or home and receive the same quality instruction, interaction, and networking opportunities as is provided in a classroom setting. Each webinar costs $125 for members and $210 for non-members. The course fee includes the digital course manual and an acknowledgment of course completion. Each course is taught by trained and experienced faculty. Registration is open now.

Summer State Hybrid Conference

We will be offering Five Leadership Training Courses (501, 506, 508, 610, and 720) in Greensboro in July. The theme of this year’s conference, “2021, The Best One Yet" is a clear and powerful message to not only our athletic staff and athletes but to everyone that interscholastic athletic programs touch. The continuous improvement and re-visioning of the purpose and mission of our school-based athletic programs have never been more critical in North Carolina. Our state conference agenda will provide you with an opportunity to network with the “Best of the Best” in North Carolina. Our opening General Session speaker will be Todd Gongwer, "Lead for God's Sake" best-selling author, coach, and speaker.  

We realize that budgetary limitations may impact some decisions related to your professional development. However, financial constraints should never be an excuse for curtailing professional growth. Some of the most important lessons and ideas you can learn come from the simple task of networking in professional seminars and learning communities like our state NCADA Conference. We urge each of you to view this as a “can’t miss” opportunity to best your best and bring out the best in others.
