Annual NCARH Conference

About NCARH Leadership Conference

Every year NCARH holds an annual state conference. This conference serves as an opportunity for schools throughout the state to meet, exchange ideas, attend programming sessions, and have LOTS of fun. The conference is held at member school which is pre-determined by a bid the hosting school won the previous year at the NCARH conference.

Each school sends several delegates to the conference and each delegation is led by the school's NCARH Communications Coordinator (NCC).

There are three boardrooms at the NCARH conference. Combined, NCC, and Recognition. Affiliated schools are permitted speaking rights in ALL THREE boardrooms. Your school does not need an NRHH chapter to be in recognition boardroom. Members schools are allowed to recognize a delegate as the Recognition Rep who will serve as the schools voice and vote in the recognition boardroom. In both the combined and NCC boardroom the NCC has those privileges.

Roll Call

Roll Call will take place the first night at the conference. It is meant to be a fun way for each delegation to introduce themselves and say hello to each delegation. The roll call can be in the form of either a song or skit that is 2-2.5 minutes long. In each school’s roll call every school must be represented in some way. Costumes are also highly encouraged to make roll call as fun and as entertaining as possible! Be creative and have fun! Good luck!


The banner should represent the NCARH theme in some way. It should also have each school represented on the banner. The banner should be made a king size pillow case.
