Due to the resurgence of COVID, the Network for Public Education has rescheduled its annual conference, which was planned for October in Philadelphia. Safety first!

NPE Re-schedules Conference for March 2022 and More

We are so disappointed to announce that we need to re-schedule our NPE/NPE Action conference until next spring. However, we are happy to announce that we have secured a new date–March 19 and 20. Again, we will be in Philadelphia at the Doubletree Hotel.

We were hopeful this time. Even when Delta began, we believed, as told, that breakthrough infections are rare. They are not. Every one in five infections in New Jersey, the only state that seems to be keeping track, sickens a vaccinated person. 20% is not rare.

And so we realized that even with a vaccine mandate for attendees, we could not protect you or the children and young students you might return to when the conference is done.

We ask for your patience once again. As public education advocates fighting the uphill battle to save and improve public schools, we look with hope to the spring of 2022.

There is no need to re-register. We will honor your tickets. If you canceled and were kind enough to donate your ticket, let us know, and we will make sure you get a free ticket to attend. We are happy to issue refunds minus credit and bank fees, but the best deal is holding that registration and saving fees and price increases.
