Along with NCATC, NOCTI and Nocti Business Solutions are pleased to sponsor this award and the outstanding individuals who earn this honor!
COVID-19 was and is nothing to joke about. It stopped all large indoor gatherings and all that goes with them. As a result, the NCATC Innovation Award was not given out in 2020 or 2021.
However, NCATC and all of our wonderful Strategic Partners and Education members became super innovated in keep our mission moving forward.
