Does NASSP accept Purchase Orders as payment for Conference registration?
NASSP accepts purchase orders for preregistration in order to invoice the school or district. Payment from the purchase order MUST be received in full by the preregistration deadline, January 28, 2013. On-site payment must be cash, check, or credit card.
When will I receive registration materials, like my name badge and tickets?
If you register and pay in full by preregistration deadline, your name badge, any purchased tickets and other materials will be mailed to you approximately two to three weeks prior to the Conference. At the Conference, simply proceed to an Express Check-In counter and present your Conference Bag & Program Ticket to pick up your program book and tote bag. Those who do not receive the pre-mailing will pick up all materials on-site at the Conference.
When is the last day I may cancel my registration?
No cancellations will be made after the cancellation deadline. All registration cancellations must be made in writing, by fax or by mail by January 28, 2013.
Is special assistance available?
Yes, please indicate if you require special assistance in the appropriate area of your registration form. NASSP staff will contact you to make any arrangements.
Will I face difficulty in getting housing through the NASSP Housing Block?
NASSP’s housing block is filled on a first-come, first-served basis until sell-out or February 1, 2013. Housing can only be booked online, or by calling Gaylord National directly at 301-965-4000.
What is the distance between the airport and the Conference Center?
Ronald Regan National Airport (DCA) is served by all major air carriers. The Airport is a mere 15 minutes from the Gaylord National Resort & Convention Center.
What if there aren’t enough handouts at a session I attend?
Speakers are responsible for providing copies of their session handouts and are encouraged to make their handouts available online for attendees to download after the conference. Speakers are also urged to include an e-mail address on their handouts so that attendees can contact them with questions after the conference.
What do I do if a room for a session I want to attend is full?
All sessions fill on a first-come, first-served basis. For your safety, and because of fire regulations, meeting rooms that fill to capacity will be restricted thereafter. Although we have tried to schedule popular topics in rooms large enough to accommodate potential crowding, we cannot always accurately anticipate attendance. There are approximately 10 sessions at any given time during the Conference, it is wise to select an alternative session in advance so that you can quickly move to another session if you are unable to arrive early enough to get seating at your first choice.
Where will 2013 NASSP Conference activities be held?
All NASSP Conference activities will take place at the Gaylord National Resort & Convention Center, National Harbor, MD.
Where and what are the dates for the conference in 2014?
February 6-8, 2014 in Dallas, TX
