NLC takes place Thursday, July 9 through Sunday, July 12 at the Hyatt Regency Indianapolis. Each collegiate chapter sends an Official Delegate and at least one other chapter leader. Additionally National Officers attend for their own training and to help facilitate the NLC program. Learn more about who attends NLC here!
