Created in 2012, NCTA is held every other year. It is designed to provide key chapter officers and advisors the chance to hone their leadership skills, learn more about the duties of their offices and improve chapter management. This year’s programming focused on many professional and personal leadership skills, applying a collaborative philosophy with an emphasis on the interdependencies between council officers, CAB and housing volunteers.
