Top 10 Must-Dos at CoSIDA/NACDA

The 2019 CoSIDA/NACDA conference is only a couple of weeks away and has much to offer.

We’re too excited to sleep! The 2019 CoSIDA/NACDA conference is only a couple of weeks away. Like many of you, we’re planning everything we want to see and do.

 Both the conference and Orlando (beyond those famous theme parks) have so much to offer and it’s impossible to fit in everything in just a few days. We’ve polled friends and some locals to bring you our recommended Top 10 Must-Dos at CoSIDA/NACDA.

  1. Get Up - Get Moving - Give Back. For the ninth consecutive year, CoSIDA and the Goodwill and Wellness Committee are set to host a charity 5K run and 2-mile walk at the annual convention in Orlando. Over the history of the event, it has raised over $21,000 for charity. So sign-up, lace-up your running shoes, and support a great cause.

  2. Pick 3. Select from a series of trending topics like work/family balance, branding, and branded content, and tips and updates for SIDs. There are a number of 30-minute sessions to select from, and you’re not just limited to one.

  3. Check out the local craft beer scene. We know you’ll have a wide selection of after-show events, but we highly recommend you check out one of our favorites, Redlight Beer Parlour. It’s a local favorite with a great selection. You can even bike there.

  4. Attend the ESPN College Sports Tavern at Tomko’s Tavern Party. It promises to be a great way to kick-off the conference, reconnect with old friends and make many new ones.

  5. Build inclusive excellence. Sunday’s featured presenter is one we’re very excited about. Dr. Greenfield, an internationally noted dynamic motivational speaker known for his high-energy and thought-provoking sessions will conduct an interactive discussion. An expert on building diversity and inclusion excellence in the workplace Dr. Greenfield promises to educate and inspire while making learning fun.

  6. See the sights from a swan. That’s right, The City of Orlando rents pedal-powered swan boats on historic Lake Eola so guests can view the park from the lake and enjoy the fountain up close.

  7. Demonstrate your value. On Tuesday, June 11 at 1:00 p.m. there’s a poignant session focused on determining & showcasing SID value, setting expectations and building relationships with the coaching staff.

  8. Attend the 2019 CoSIDA Special Awards Luncheon on Wednesday, June 12th at 11:30 a.m. Celebrate the achievements of your colleagues as we look back and plan forward.

  9. Build your network. You know what they say, ``your network is your net worth”. Participate in Ignite! Power Hour, the speed networking session on Sunday, June 9th at 3:00 p.m.

  10. Visit Us! Above all, please drop by our booths to say hello (same as above, #4 at CoSIDA and #908 at NACDA). Better yet, book a 1:1 session with us. We look forward to learning about your goals for the coming year.
