2020 Conference in Seattle will have to wait…Alternative Education Opportunities Available
After a great deal of thought and discussion, the NPEA Board has decided to officially cancel the in-person 2020 Annual Conference scheduled to be held in Seattle, WA. Based on the on-going COVID-19 concerns, the board felt canceling the in-person conference and instead offering alternative educational opportunities such as a half-day virtual event in October, monthly webinars, videos, etc. was the most socially and financially responsible action to take.
“Many systems are facing economic constraints and travel restrictions right now and likely into the fall, it just made the most sense to cancel the conference and begin planning alternative educational opportunities that we can offer to our members,” said NPEA Board President, Travis Almond. “I am really going to miss seeing everyone at the conference. It’s one of my favorite events of the entire year but canceling is the right thing to do and we are excited to bring quality educational opportunities to you in a brand-new way.”
The Board is working to build a robust line-up of topics and speakers that will bring value to you and your system. If you have not already paid your annual membership dues for 2020, please do so in order to be a part of the planned events. A schedule of events and more details will be sent out and posted to the NPEA website in July.
2020 Membership Dues are $750 and can be sent to:
