DII SAAC Super Region Convention

The NCAA Division II Student-Athlete Advisory Committee Super Region Convention is intended to bolster student-athlete participation in the Division II governance structure and foster communication among SAACs at the campus, conference and national levels. The super region convention, which is part of the division’s Foundation for the Future initiative, will debut in November 2017 and will be held in different super regions of the country for the next four years.

Student-athletes selected to attend will return to campus with invaluable leadership skills, knowledge of Division II student-athlete initiatives and the Make It Yours brand and ways to strengthen the student-athlete voice. They also will know how to plan for successful fundraisers and work with Team IMPACT and Make-A-Wish. The program will engage a diverse representation of student-athletes and administrators from the campus and conference levels. Participants will grow personally and professionally, gain a network of friends and return to campus with ideas they can implement to boost their SAAC.

Division II conferences in the eligible region will select two student-athletes and an administrator from each of their active member institutions, as well as a conference administrator.

For the 2017 convention, each institution in the following six conferences will have an opportunity to send two student-athletes and one administrator: Central Atlantic Collegiate Conference, Central Intercollegiate Athletic Association, East Coast Conference, Mountain East Conference, Northeast-10 Conference and Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference. Each eligible institution can nominate up to four student-athletes and one administrator.

Attendance at the convention is at no cost to the participants, institutions or conference offices – the NCAA pays for airfare or mileage, shuttle transportation, lodging and meals; however, rental car fees are not reimbursed.

The inaugural Division II SAAC Super Region Convention will take place Nov. 17-19.

Criteria for Eligible Participants

The Division II SAAC Super Region Convention is a unique educational opportunity that requires diversity and inclusion. Consideration for selecting participants should be given to student-athletes with a diverse representation of experiences and those who have a positive influence on campus and within the community.
