NCCCMA Agenda and App Instructions

There is a NEW conference app for the 2018 NCCCMA Seminars.  If you are planning to attend the 2018 Winter Seminar, it is recommended that you first delete the older version of the app, “NCCCMA Event”, from your mobile device and then download the new “2018 NCCCMA Seminar” app from Apple iTunes or the Google Play Store.  The icons for both apps are identical and it’s easy to confuse the older app for the newer one. 

Also, you may view the conference app from any Microsoft device (smartphone or tablet) or computer by clicking using the following link:

The app contains the full schedule, speaker information, vendor information, parking map, Benton Convention Center map, Marriott Hotel map, downtown map, and restaurant map!

There will be a printed one-page summary agenda at the conference for your reference. All other material will be available on the 2018 NCCCMA Seminar app and also posted online at
