The National Collegiate Choral Organization (NCCO) exists to serve the specific needs of university and collegiate choral conductors by providing a national forum for their collegiate choruses to perform, by offering lectures and promoting repertoire suitable to their interests, and by aiding in their professional development and program growth through performance as well as scholarly and research opportunities.
NCCO sponsors biennial conferences that focus on the particular needs of the college/university and other choral professionals with respect to:
- Performances by university and college choirs
- Presentations/clinics/workshops appropriate for university and college conductors
- Literature sessions that feature works appropriate for university and college choirs
