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, debuted in November 2017 and will be held annually in different super regions of the country through the 2021-22 academic year.

Key Dates

  • Nominations open in Program Hub, Aug. 2, 2021
  • Nominations close, Sept. 10, 2021
  • SAAC Super Region Convention in Chicago, Nov. 19-21, 2021

Student-athletes selected to attend will return to campus with invaluable leadership skills, methods to strengthen the student-athlete voice, knowledge of Division II student-athlete initiatives and the Make It Yours brand. 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.

The 2021 convention is open to institutions in the Great American Conference, Great Lakes Valley Conference, Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference, Great Midwest Athletic Conference, Mid-American Intercollegiate Athletics Association, Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference, and independent institutions. 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 next Division II SAAC Super Region Convention will take place November 19-21, 2021, Hyatt Regency McCormick Place in Chicago.

Criteria for Eligible Participants

The Division II SAAC Super Region Convention is a unique educational opportunity that requires diversity and inclusion.
