NHC Mornings & The NHC Daily

The NHC Daily - 2017

The NHC Daily is a twice-daily conference e-newsletter that comes out during the National Humanities Conference and which is made available to conference attendees and members who were unable to attend the event.

In the mornings, the daily is entitled “NHC Mornings” and features guest posts, highlights upcoming events, and alerts attendees and those interested in following the conference to digital components, including: livestream opportunities, conference app updates. The “Mornings” e-news also details any last-minute program changes or updates that are not reflected in the printed onsite brochure.

In the evenings, the daily is entitled “The NHC Daily” and recaps events from the conference, including lectures and concurrent sessions under “Event Highlights” and “Session Reflections”. Additionally, it includes photos from that day and previews the next day’s events.
