NCCO8 National Conference
Call for Panel Participation
“Building Your Program”

The National Collegiate Choral Organization (NCCO) invites applications for panel members at the 2019 National Conference. The topic is Building Your Program: Strategies for Recruitment and Retention.

Collegiate choral programs face one common issue: recruiting and retaining singers for their ensembles. This panel explores best practices from across the spectrum of the collegiate choral world surrounding this important issue.

We welcome applications from individuals whose research, scholarship, and experience could enrich a discussion of this timely topic. Applicants from all types of collegiate choral programs—large, small, conservatory, research university, liberal arts, and two-year—are encouraged to apply.

The 50-minute panel includes between three and five panelists and a moderator. The goal of the session is to foster dialogue and discussion between and among panelists, not to create individual mini-lectures from all panelists.

To Apply

Each applicant should submit:

  1. A current CV
  2. A brief, 1-page statement outlining your research, scholarship, or experience as it relates to the given topic, highlighting specific experiences or practices you might bring to this discussion.

Deadline: All materials must be submitted by May 1, 2019, 11:59p CST.

Notification: Results will be announced by June 15, 2019.
