Conference Registration Information for Panelists

Published by

Register for the conference:

You and your fellow presenters must register for the conference by August 30 so that we have a firm commitment. We have prospective panels on a waiting list and we would like to inform those on that list as soon as possible if selected panels are unable to participate.

Registration includes 3 meals for the conference – breakfast and lunch on Saturday, and brunch on Sunday. We have a few panelist options for your registration. We are asking you to make the best choice for you, remembering that we are trying to stretch our scholarship fund to help as many people as possible attend. 

We hope that you will be able to pay the full registration, which is an already subsidized ticket. If you need some additional help, you can enter the code NPEAction2020Presenter to receive a special $30.00 discount for panelists. We have only a limited number, so please register soon if you need this option.

Register for the conference by clicking here.

If you need additional assistance, please apply for a panelist scholarship by clicking here.

We will be reviewing scholarship applications once a week and will notify you as soon as possible so you can complete your registration by our presenter deadline of August 30, 2019. We will do our best to meet everyone’s needs, but we do have a limited scholarship fun


You will want to make your hotel reservations now to get the best discounted rate of $169. Our rooms will go fast! Please visit the main page of the conference registration website to reserve your room by clicking here. Other important notes:

  •  Sessions are 1 hour and 15 minutes long.
  •  We are beginning to schedule the workshops so if you have specific restriction due to travel, please send that information to Lavelle at with “Scheduling” in the subject as soon as possible. We will do our best to accommodate.
  •  If you need to make any major changes to your workshop – different panelists or focus – email for approval with the subject line “Panel Change.” 

We have diligently selected our panels based on the topic and names you submitted, so if there is a major change we need to discuss with you before proceeding.

Thank you for agreeing to present at #NPE20Philly. Thank you for sharing your time, your workshop proposal, and the critical work you are doing to support our students, teachers, communities, and public education. Without you, there is no conference, and the boards of NPE and NPE Action are incredibly grateful.
