Chicago Chapter Excited About Hosting NCC 2016

By Paul Dittmann

As great as NCC 2015 was in Omaha, Chicago area schools were noticeably lacking.  Bill Waas and I have been working hard to change that.  So far we have met with 8 universities and colleges and all have committed to put together teams for NCC 2016:  DeVry, DePaul, Loyola, Elmhurst, Dominican, Robert Morris, Governors State and Moraine Valley CC.   We have another 8-10 schools we'll be meeting with in September and early October.  We're finding it's an easy "sell" to Dean's and Department Chairs.  They all seem to have top students they would like to showcase and are excited about having a tool to help engage their students.  We'd like to get 700 students from 70 universities and colleges in this coming year's competition.

Also, several of the schools we met with offer game development programs.  We are in discussions with several game development companies to determine the feasibility of having them sponsor and help develop & administer a "game development" competition.  If you have any schools or potential sponsors that you feel may be interested, please have them contact .

As the Professional Chapter host, we're available to help support your efforts to make NCC 2016 an event to remember.  We are aggressively pursuing potential sponsors and exhibitors let alone an awesome of featured IT spotlight speakers and panels as opposed to traditional breakout speakers further showcase not only the speakers but the topics as well.

Feel free to contact Bill or me at any time.  We're more than happy to share our documents and strategies.
