Recently, I have seen and heard a flurry of questions about the overall NCECA schedule and making decisions. Specifically, a lot of people are asking “If I can only spend one day at NCECA, which one do I pick?” Of course this is an incredibly hard question because even spending ALL the days at NCECA you can’t do everything! That decision is also really personal, depending on what you like. BUT, I thought it might be helpful to have a general overview of what happens each day (and what things are free)
Tuesday night the conference unofficially kicks off with the Gallery Expo reception from 6:30-8:00pm It is free and open to the public.
