In 2021, we will gather online to engage and elevate our conference theme: Culture Keepers XI the Sankofa Experience: Inspired by Our Past, Igniting Our Future from July 28 – August 1. The NCAAL XI website is the place to start planning your conference experience. Whether you are interested in participating in conference planning, presenting a program, exhibiting, or partaking in the distinctive and exceptional NCAAL learning and networking opportunities as an attendee, you will be able to find the information you need.

As NCAAL XI excitement builds, you will find specific information about the conference speakers and programs, conference registration, special events. Today, we invite you to learn more about Tulsa, OK, reflect on BCALA’s illustrious history, consider volunteering your time and talents to the conference or check out the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) section.
