We are excited to be hosting the annual Southern Association for College Student Affairs conference with NASPA Region III in the beautiful Chattanooga, Tennessee! This year's theme, New Directions: A Climate of Change, is sure to leave you feeling inspired and ready to tackle important issues back on your campus.

Chattanooga is centrally located in the Southeast at the intersections of I-75, I-24 and I-59.  The river-city is within three hours of more than ten million people living in Atlanta, Nashville, Knoxville, Birmingham and Huntsville.  Chattanooga’s Airport, CHA, is just ten miles from Downtown and offers direct or 1-stop flights to most destinations.
