REGISTER FOR HACIA XXVII
HACIA XXVII WILL BE HELD VIRTUALLY (MARCH 10-13TH)
As previously shared with our community, HACIA has continued to monitor the evolving factors related to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, and has decided to move HACIA 2022 to a virtual format. This was a difficult but necessary decision, as the health of students is our top priority, and we cannot predict the state of COVID come March.
A NOTE ON POSITION PAPERS
All registered HACIA delegates must submit position papers to their committee directors. The essays must be sent by Wednesday, February 23 at 11:59 PM to receive feedback from the committee directors.
