NJPSA 2020 Virtual Fall Conference Schedule - October 2020

As we begin the 2020-21 school year, now is a great time to review the schedule of events and register for one or all three days! 
  • All sessions will be held on Zoom.
  • Attendees can join a breakout session live, or watch a recorded version at their convenience.
  • Keynotes by George Couros and Zaretta Hammond will be recorded and may be viewed live or at a later time. However, the interview and live Q and A with Captain “Sully” Sullenberger will not be recorded.
  • Those who register for one-day-only will only have access to the live presentation or recordings of that day’s sessions. Three-day registrants will have access to all conference sessions, live or recorded.
  • Please review this schedule of all keynotes and virtual workshop sessions. After you register, you will be sent more information on how to join the conference live and attend your sessions.
  • The schedule was built with flexibility in mind, so you can attend as many sessions as you can live from your office or wherever is most convenient and still have the ability to work between sessions. If you have to miss a session, that’s OK. You can always watch the recording later.

  • NJPSA Members: $292 (3-day)   $149 (1-day)
  • Non-members $345 (3-day)   $195 (1-day)
