NCORE is proud to announce that we have developed a new online event launching June 23-26, 2020. Continuing to sustain and honor our unique community is important. While we cannot fully replicate the entire five-day NCORE Conference, we hope that Connection 2020: An NCORE Experience will showcase keynote speakers, educational content and programming that can only come from this community. Several of the outstanding planned face-to-face sessions are being redesigned and promise to be exciting, engaging, and interactive in a virtual platform. We encourage you to join us and #StartTheConversation online.

As we launch this new NCORE experience, we want to take this opportunity to acknowledge that refunds for the New York City conference have been sent to many of you and the remainder of you will be receiving your refunds shortly. Please rest assured that the refund process is ongoing at our university and remains a priority while we continue to work remotely. Therefore, the NYC fees will not be applied to Connection 2020. Thank you for your patience and understanding during this time. Again, join us at Connection 2020: An NCORE Experience.



  • All-day programming will begin Tuesday, June 23rd, and conclude Friday, June 26th. A sample schedule of events is below. You can choose to attend any or all of the days. Choose the 4-day experience and you will attend for a discounted rate!

Payment and Refund Policies

  • Payment can be made only by credit card at the time of registration. 

  • No refunds will be made after payment is submitted. If you cannot attend, we will provide the program on-demand.

  • We have tried to set a price point that seems reasonable for attendees while simply allowing us to cover expenses; therefore institutional, group and student rates are not available for this event. During this pandemic, we have been supporting our NCORE community by providing high quality free and low-cost webinars that are being well received.


Single Day Rate - $125.00

Full Conference Rate - $400.00
