Welcome to the 2011 NACA® Mid Atlantic Regional Conference

On behalf of the Regional Conference Program Committee, Hello! The committee has been hard at work since last year’s conference and hope to bring you an amazing 2011 Mid Atlantic Regional Conference. Each year the conference gets bigger and better than the year before, and this year that pattern continues. With activities and sessions for both our new and seasoned attendees, we have a jam-packed agenda with opportunities for all. Let’s take a look at the different events that will be occurring throughout the conference: Educational Sessions: First of all, thank you to all who submitted an educational session this year! These sessions are a wonderful way for professionals and student leaders to share their knowledge in a forum conducive for learning. A committee of dedicated individuals came together to choose sessions that were designed to give you a wide variety of topics and expertise. Showcases: With a remarkable number of showcase applications submitted the committee worked hard for many days to ensure the acts going on stage will entertain all! The acts chosen are of great quality with a wide variety to appeal to all schools and meet different entertainment needs. This year we will be kicking off the conference with the showcase samplers, a must-not-miss showcase! Be sure to arrive on time. Campus Activities Marketplace: Showcases are just a small portion of the acts available to you at the conference. With representatives from over 140 different agencies there will be thousands of different acts for you to hear and learn more about. Be prepared to ask questions to find what you are looking for and make sure to do great business in the Marketplace! Networking and Professional Development: We are excited to welcome some key professionals to our regional conference, as featured speakers, to assist the professional staff in staying in tune with current trends and hot topics. Between educational sessions and the professional development luncheon, there are many ways for professionals to gain and share knowledge and network with others in the region. Volunteer Opportunities: The Regional Conference Program Committee is composed of all volunteers! We could not do it without people like you, who love their chosen field and want to ensure great opportunities for education in student activities are available. There are many ways you can get involved, both onsite and on future conference committees. It is truly rewarding to be a volunteer – sign-up today! We truly hope that you are ready to “Just Wing It” with us this year!

Welcome to the NACA® Mid Atlantic Regional Conference!

On behalf of NACA, we invite you to enjoy your time in Buffalo at this year’s conference. Each year we look forward to presenting a stimulating regional event with a wealth of new information and a variety of entertainment acts for school attendees to consider bringing to their campuses. To our associate members, artists, performers and speakers, we welcome you to be a part of the excitement as schools preview talent, participate in Block Booking and select acts. This is a wonderful venue for you to showcase your talent and share information with our member schools throughout the region. There are many opportunities available during the next few days, so please take time to review your program guide for all of the activities, educational sessions, marketplace hours and showcases. We also advise you to network with schools, students and exhibitors. We would like to thank our hard working and dedicated program volunteers and conference chair, Crissy Fabiszak for their effort in presenting this year’s Mid Atlantic Conference.

CONFERENCE NOTES

Helpful Information For Advisors

Educational Sessions

• Be sure to train your delegation for the conference. Encourage them to participate in ALL activities, go over your calendar with available dates and spaces on your campus, and make sure they are aware of their budget.

The NACA Mid Atlantic Regional Conference is proud to be offering a wide range of topics from which all participants may choose. There are sessions on programming, diversity, leadership, concerts, budgets, NACA, and many other topic areas. Please take a look at all of the options and spread your delegation out to get the most from the educational sessions.

• Encourage your students to visit every booth in the Marketplace. Students and staff will receive BINGO cards that they can complete by visiting Associate members’ booths and win valuable prizes.

Volunteering

• Please attend Professional Development Educational Sessions! The conference committee is intentional about the speakers and guests, so please be aware that those sessions exist just for you! • Network Network Network! NACA conferences aren’t just for students! Make it a goal to meet 2 new colleagues a day, as well as new associates! Attending the Associate/Staff Member reception is a great way to do this! • The conference committee is forming for the 2012 Regional Conference in Lancaster, PA and there are still positions open! Visit www.naca.org for more information!

Name Badges Name badges are very important to the security of the conference and must be worn at all times for entry into conference events (Showcases, Educational Sessions, Campus Activities Marketplace, etc.) A $5 replacement fee is charged for all lost badges. Be sure to check for correct spelling of delegate’s names and bring changes to on-site registration. Please do not place stickers or buttons on your name badge so that your name and school information cannot be read. People need and want to see who you are, and you’ll want to be able to see who other people are as well.

Join the team by volunteering! Our Regional Conference could not function without volunteers! If you, or any of your fellow delegates, would like to donate a little (or a lot of) time, please stop by the Volunteer Booth. Volunteers are needed in many areas, including security, Educational Sessions, and Showcases. If interested, apply for an open position on the Regional Conference Program Committee! You can be part of all the action and help plan the 2012 NACA Mid Atlantic Regional Conference. Please visit the Volunteer Center for more information.

Showcases and the Campus Activities Marketplace The Spotlight Showcase includes acts of less than $1,000, as well as acts of more than $1,000. Other showcase categories you will experience are Lecture, Roving Artist, and Special Events. Performers will showcase themselves to the conference delegation, giving you a taste of his/her act, and in the process, will hopefully entice you to ask more about the act in the Campus Activities Marketplace. Please be courteous during all showcases. Kindly keep noise to a minimum and try not to leave during a showcase. Please turn off all cell phones and pagers. Take notes; you will need them later when your delegation discusses acts it wishes to bring to campus. Biographical information, prices and contact information for each performer can be found in each daily section of the program. Many non-showcasing artists are represented in the Campus Activities Marketplace. Please visit all exhibitors.

SUPPORT THE FOUNDATION IN STYLE. Make a donation to the NACA Foundation and receive a 2011 lapel pin or collector’s button.

2011 NACA® MID ATLANTIC REGIONAL CONFERENCE


NACA POLICIES

NACA’s Mission NACA links the higher education and entertainment communities in a business and learning partnership, creating educational and business opportunities for our student and professional members. NACA’s Definition of Diversity Diversity is an attribute and a goal. As an attribute, diversity is ethnic identification/race, gender, disability, sexual orientation, age, religion, economic status and the many other aspects of our lives which define the family of humanity. As a goal, diversity refers to the intentional valuing, respecting and inclusion of all peoples. NACA recognizes the diversity of all its members and supports the development and implementation of programs and services that achieve this goal. Non-Discrimination, Diversity Advancement and Affirmative Action Principles NACA is committed to advancing diversity development and the principles of equal opportunity and affirmative action through its respective programs, services and volunteer involvement. To ensure compliance with these principles, the organization: • Will not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, gender, economic status, sexual orientation, national origin, age, ethnic background or disability in any of their policies, procedures or practices • Will promote vigorous efforts to enhance, develop and increase a diverse volunteer pool in all areas of the Association • Will actively promote diversity in their programs and services • Will expect all volunteers and NACA Office staff to consistently display a sensitivity to diversity and the principles of affirmative action • Will promote the importance of eliminating discriminatory and/or culturally insensitive language, behavior and content from NACA-sponsored activities and will urge all members and guests of the Association to cooperate in this effort. There is no intent to support censorship. The purpose is to induce thought and advance planning in an effort to ensure that showcase performances, Campus Activities Marketplace displays, educational sessions and other NACA-sponsored activities reflect appropriate diversity and sensitivity in their plans and actions. Alcohol and Other Substance Abuse Policy The National Association for Campus Activities and the NACA Foundation recognize the serious threats that alcohol and other substance abuse present to college populations, the entertainment industry, and to society as a whole. We realize that our Association is not immune to the problems associated with abuse. NACA is committed to addressing this issue through various activities, programs and educational efforts on regional and national levels. All NACA members and volunteers are encouraged to uphold the Association’s statement in spirit and action; however, NACA has no responsibility for the conduct or behavior of event attendees. Alcohol served outside of any official event (an official event is one endorsed or hosted by NACA) is not the responsibility of NACA, but is instead the responsibility of the individual/group/firm coordinating, hosting, promoting or holding the activity. All responsibility for determining whether participants at the activity are underage and for complying with applicable state and local laws rests solely with the individual/group/firm coordinating, hosting, promoting or holding the activity, and is not in any way the responsibility of NACA or any of its employees or representatives. In the event that NACA becomes the subject of a claim or loss arising from violation of this policy by any person, group or business entity, or service of alcohol at any non-official event, that person, group or business entity agrees that it shall indemnify and hold harmless NACA from and against all resulting claims and losses, including NACA’s costs and attorney’s fees, that arise from or relate to violation of this policy and/or service of alcohol at said non-official event. NACA Statement Regarding Legal Drinking Age The legal drinking age is 21. The conference hotel and facilities will not tolerate alcoholic beverages carried in open containers by anyone on these properties. NACA will not allow alcohol to be carried into showcases or the Campus Activities Marketplace. NACA Statement on Showcases Attendance at showcase events is voluntary, and it is the responsibility of the attendee to determine whether a particular event poses a risk to the attendee. Some element of risk may be associated with some showcase events. Some events may include hypnosis, and some individuals may be more susceptible to hypnosis than others. The attendee accepts all responsibility for all consequences associated with attending showcase events, and NACA is held harmless against all claims arising from any result of attending a showcase event.

2011 NACA® MID ATLANTIC REGIONAL CONFERENCE

Special Needs Policy Although the Association strives to make all events accessible to all participants, including individuals with a disability or special need where reasonably possible, not all special needs may be accommodated at all sites. If you desire special services because of a disability, handicap or special need, please indicate the special service(s) on an attached sheet of paper and return it to the address indicated in these registration materials as early as possible and at least six weeks in advance of the first day of the conference. If the Association is unable to provide the special service(s) you requested and you do not attend the event, the Association will refund your registration fee. Special Dietary Needs Please indicate the need for special meals on the registration form. Special meals may not be available at all sites. Videotaping/Photography Policies NACA photographs and videotapes events and attendees. These photographs and video images may be used in any NACA materials and publications, and on the NACA web site. By attending this event, you, your delegates and/or the acts you represent give NACA consent to use photographs and video images in which you, your delegates and/or your acts appear. NACA delegates or other persons may use photographic, videotape or other image and sound recording devices to record events and activities that take place during NACA events, as long as these activities do not interfere with the audience enjoyment of or participation in NACA events. Those photographing, videotaping or otherwise recording events cannot interfere with showcase technical crew, stagehands, etc. The following specific guidelines apply to any photography, videotaping or other recording at an NACA event: 1. Professional crews will not be allowed; 2. On-stage filming or placement will not be allowed. Recording must occur from the show floor; 3. Access to the soundboard will not be allowed; 4. Audience views cannot be obstructed; 5. Power must be self-contained (i.e., battery packs). Access to the event power supply will not be allowed; 6. Use of supplemental lighting will not be allowed; 7. Some forms of recording/taping may not be available at specific venues due to union or other facility regulations; 8. Recording/taping of some materials may require the permission of the owner of such materials, and it is the recorder’s responsibility to obtain such necessary permissions. If audience members, showcase crew or other technical, conference or facility staff complain about the position of a camera/operator, the camera/operator will be asked to move. If the camera/operator does not comply, they will not be allowed to continue taping. BY USING VIDEOGRAPHIC AND/OR OTHER RECORDING DEVICES TO RECORD NACA EVENTS AND ACTIVITIES, THE RECORDER REPRESENTS THAT HE/SHE HAS OBTAINED ALL NECESSARY PERMISSIONS FROM ANY COPYRIGHT HOLDERS OR OTHER ENTITIES WHOSE RIGHTS MAY BE AFFECTED. THE RECORDER AGREES TO INDEMNIFY NACA, ITS EMPLOYEES, AGENTS, OFFICERS, DIRECTORS AND INDEPENDENT CONTRACTORS FROM ANY AND ALL LIABILITY ARISING FROM THE RECORDER’S VIDEOTAPING OR RECORDING ACTIVITIES. Event Cancellation Policy NACA reserves the right to cancel any program. Causes for cancellation may include, but are not limited to, low participation by schools and/or associates, acts of God, etc. In the case of a program cancellation, NACA will only reimburse fees paid to NACA; any travel, lodging or other non-NACA fees will not be reimbursed. NACA Civility Statement Prominent among the values that define the NACA community is civility, which includes mutual respect, fairness, and politeness. Membership in any community requires a concern for the common good for all who belong to that community. Each individual may possess different ideas, as well as different ways of communicating those ideas, particularly in a community as varied and diverse as an association. Because of these differences, respect and civility are integral to maintaining the quality of the association environment. Respect and civility should therefore be afforded to all individuals regardless of role within the association. This includes treating people with courtesy and consideration, acting and speaking judiciously and behaving professionally. All members of the association community are called upon to promote and value this ethic of common respect and civility. We will encourage discussion with a goal of instilling an appreciation for the importance of fair-mindedness, personal responsibility, and respect for differing opinions. At such occasions, members will always be strongly encouraged to observe common standards of decorum and to display a respectful tenor. We will also consider appropriate steps to be taken when members of our community do not respect these standards.

2011 NACA® MID ATLANTIC REGIONAL CONFERENCE


SAVE MONEY BUILD RELATIONSHIPS DEVELOP SKILLS Just as in 1960, when a group of school representatives formalized a simple and practical idea to increase the buying power of their campus programming dollars, BLOCK BOOKING continues to be a cornerstone of NACA. Whether you approach the process from a money-saving standpoint or a student development perspective, the advantages to school members, associate members and artists/performers are many.

Benefits: • Saving money • Bring in more diverse talent by partnering with surrounding schools • Develop long-lasting partnerships with agencies and artists • Support green environmental efforts by eliminating excessive travel • Educate students in the art of negotiation, organizational skills and contracting • Create avenues for students to pursue future careers

Does Block Booking really work? Yes! A student affairs professional who uses Block Booking had this to say: In addition to leadership training, attendance at the conferences saves SAC a great deal of money in contract fee discounts, which are offered to schools who commit to acts at the conference. Last year, SAC saved approximately $9,050 in contract fees by attending the regional and National conferences.  By setting many of their Fall ‘10 programs at the National Convention in February, SAC was able to save approximately $3,100 in contract fees for the coming semester that would not have been discounted had delegates not been present at the Convention.

With thoughtful lyrics of everyday consequences, Jay’s music perfectly fuses coffeehouse acoustic and pop/rock genres. Currently working on his debut album, Jay has received amazing reactions from college campuses he’s toured on the East Coast. Jay began playing guitar for the same reason any 9-year-old kid would: to be cool. But when Jay moved to a new school and became the overweight son of recently divorced parents, music became more than a social status, it was his refuge. As a 12-year-old recluse, Jay locked himself in his room transposing profound emotions into verses and melodies. Through heartache and tribulations Jay wrote about the ruthlessness of high school bullies, devastation of love and loss, and sweet obsessions. High school performances eventually gained him popularity and respect. Though Jay has been writing introspective songs about life experiences since the age of 12, his long journey as an artist and musician has just begun. “When you live what you write, the music writes itself.” jayloftusmusic.com twitter.com/imjayloftus facebook.com/jayloftusmusic

In an attempt to put a human face on the Nike sweatshop debate, Keady then moved to the slums of Indonesia to live with Nike factory workers and try to survive on their sweatshop wages.

That car was driven by an 18-year-old who was on his cell phone and never saw the light. Good’s parents were killed instantly and Jacy almost died herself. She still suffers from a variety of permanent and near-debilitating injuries. Good has now devoted her life to spreading the message on the dangers of distracted driving. She travels with her fiancé Steve Johnson, sharing her story in the hope that she can inspire all drivers to put down their phones and drive.

Josh started out as a street performer in Santa Monica, CA and has since sold over 20,000 copies of his demo CDs. In 2007, Josh contributed violin to pop/r&b singer Chris Brown’s unreleased track “Flying Solo.” Josh has also performed twice with the Los Angeles Ballet Academy. He was also featured in the 2010 NBA ALL-Star Game commercial narrated by rapper/actor Common. Recently, Josh performed at the 2011 Austin Fashion Awards in Texas and also performed live for special guests Clint Eastwood and Sela Ward in Hollywood Hills, CA.

The four members, who have been friends forever, simply feel safe and comfortable around each other. “We’re in a safe environment...and that makes us feel free to be who we are. The key word is safety,” says Doug Brown, singerguitarist. It wasn’t long before this budding Tulsa, Oklahoma band began drawing over 1,000 people a night around their home region. So, the touring began—at nice places, at crappy places, at dives, theatres, clubs, colleges, or wherever anyone would take them. They moved to a music hotbed, Nashville, eventually signed a worldwide recording deal with Universal Motown Records, and have recently toured the world with Seether, Secondhand Serenade, Puddle of Mudd, 3 Doors Down, and many more. VH1 has been a huge supporter with two of the band’s videos now spinning regularly on the music channel.

Blue Meadow’s influences and diverse background create a sound that’s different but extremely familiar. Some of their influences are bands like Coldplay, U2, Stevie Wonder, and the a cappella group Take 6, with these musical influences resonating throughout their songs.

Fresh! The ShowOff Show, an exciting power pack in its fifth successful year, is refreshing itself with a new cast member, new jokes, new tricks and new antics certain to be audience-pleasers. The original duo excelled at colleges, and now the ShowOffs are recast, rewritten, recharged and ridiculously fun. Evan and Scot demonstrate dangerous dexterity (like juggling a bowling ball, knife and toilet brush—balanced on a trash-heap), do hilarious things (like a slap fight with flyswatters), and teach life skills (like effective pickup lines and how to spin a toothbrush on your finger). The ShowOff Show welcomes accomplished Hollywood “pancake juggler” Scot Nery who joins mainstay straight man Evan Young for a duo industry insiders are dubbing “perfectly matched.” Boasting 25 years’ combined experience, Scot and Evan retain the ShowOff Show’s well-deserved reputation of refreshing dynamic comedy variety that’s sure to amuse and amaze any audience on any campus. These guys are all about “showing off” fun. It’s not just a performance: it’s an interactive party.

In the process, Mikal has been nominated for 15 music awards in 2011 alone, has become sponsored by Taylor Guitars, captured the attention of the show Scrubs by writing a song for them, and has been named a “top artist under $2500” by Campus Activities Magazine.

De’Anna never has a problem getting people to volunteer for her shows, because from the first minute audiences recognize that this is one cool show—with live onstage music provided by the HypnoChick’s Gen Y sidekick, DJ Motion. De’Anna’s rock-star style and irrepressible charisma make everyone in the room want to be a part of the fun they know is about to unfold. The HypnoChick’s goal is never to embarrass her volunteers, but to coax out everyone’s inner performer and, by tapping into their own imaginations, making sure that they enjoy this outrageous experience as much as the audience. Because no two volunteers are the same, no two HypnoChick performances are the same— the element of surprise is half the fun.
