About the NCCI Annual Conference
The Network for Change and Continuous Innovation’s (NCCI) Annual Conference features Keynotes, General Sessions, and concurrent sessions designed to educate its attendees. The Conference provides unparalleled opportunities for members and non-members to share insights and solutions regarding continuous improvement, process improvement, strategic planning, Lean, project management, and innovation in higher education. The Annual Conference is held in July of each year, just before the National Association of College and University Business Officers’ (NACUBO) Annual Meeting.
