The YMCA Conference on National Affairs (CONA) is an annual summer program that offers an opportunity for students to do research and present proposals on National or International issues. Students from across the country present their proposals, which are discussed and debated in committees.  The last two years have been virtual, but the conference will be in person this year, July 2-7 at the Blue Ridge Assembly in Black Mountain, NC. There will be health protocols in place, which will be determined closer to the event.
