2021 NASPA Region I Conference

Regional Annual Conferences Regions Region I

 

 

Presented By

Region 1

Welcome

The 2021 Conference Committee is pleased to offer our Region I Annual Conference  in-person conference November 15-17, 2021 in Hartford, CT.  The conference committee is currently working to develop a strong conference experience for all attendees, while striving to be fiscally responsible to our members.  This may result in some changes to the traditional conference experience; however, we hope the resulting experience will be as impactful and relevant to our Region I Members’ needs as it has been in the past. More information will be coming soon regarding our call for programs, program reviewers as well as registrations. Please check back here often as we will be updating the website with the most current information.

If COVID-19 guidance changes as we move into the fall, we will update you as soon as we are able. We hope you all are excited to see one another in person in November.  We look forward to a great experience.

Caitie Regan

2021 Region I Conference Chair

 

COVID Event Safety and Responsibility

NASPA COVID Event Safety and Responsibility

In keeping with the Association's duty to care and responsibility as host, NASPA leadership has decided that all participants at in-person conferences, whether a presenter, attendee, exhibitor, staff, guest, or vendor will be required to be fully vaccinated. "Full vaccination" means that either 14 days have passed since receiving the second dose of FDA or WHO authorized (or emergency use authorized) double-dozed vaccines or single-dose vaccine. Proof of vaccination will be required to attend any events where there is a vaccination requirement. 

Attendees will be required to attest to their vaccination during the registration process and provide CDC-or WHO-approved proof of vaccination status prior to attending any NASPA event. You will be required to either show vaccination documentation at onsite registration or prior to the event via a HIPPA-compliant online format. For those individuals who are not vaccinated, you will be offered the option to register but you will be required to provide documentation of a negative PCR test no more than 72 hours prior to arrival to any event.

***Attendees who registered for the conference before October 13, 2021 will receive an email from Stephanie Gordon at NASPA with a link to a Vaccination Status Form and Waiver to be completed before attending the conference.

Mask Requirement

All participants at NASPA events will be required to wear masks. Masks must be worn at all times except while actively eating/drinking, presenting, or in an outdoor venue where individuals can be physically distant. Masks must cover both the mouth and nose. We ask that participants honor the requests of others to mask up and/or maintain physical distancing.

Individuals who have a documented disability which precludes the wearing of a mask may request a modification to mask policies. Please contact Stephanie Gordon, vice president for professional development, to discuss modification(s) to mask policies.

Group Registration

NASPA Region I is pleased to offer a group registration rate for the regional conference. Please review this information carefully before registering your group.

General Information about Group Rates:

  • Pricing is based on member registration rate for 5 professionals ($1750) or for 5 students ($750). The package allows the purchaser to register 6 students or 6 professionals for the price of 5.
  • The group registration packages must be purchased and paid for by the October 8th Early Bird deadline.
  • These packages are non-refundable and are all-or-nothing (i.e.: in other words, if the purchaser ends up only registering 4 people, no partial refunds can be given).  

 

 To Access Group Rate Packages:
  • For purchaser, group registration products will show up by clicking on Attendee. The packages can be purchased on their own and can be purchased in multiple increments – so a purchaser can buy two student packages if they know they have 12 students to register.
  • After the package is purchased, contact the Region I conference committee with a copy of the confirmation to receive a passcode. The purchaser will then provide the passcode to the individuals to register themselves.
  • When a registrant from the group has the passcode, they should log in, click on Group Registration on the initial screen, and enter the passcode, then move through the remainder of the registration process.
  • All passcodes will be verified by each group package; therefore, the passcode you receive must only be given to those individuals in the group you are registering. 

 Questions? Please contact Region I conference committee and we will respond as soon as we are able to.

 See you in Hartford!
