Frequently Asked Questions about the Conference

When will registration open? Registration will open in April 2017!

What is the conference dress code? Casual (jeans, slacks). Rooms vary in temperature, so we recommend dressing in layers or bringing a sweater.

What is the difference between a CEU and a certificate of attendance? A CEU is a unit of continuing education recorded on a transcript at a college or university. Many professionals need CEUs to stay licensed. A certificate of attendance says you were at the conference for a certain number of hours (often adequate for parent training requirements). Check with your agency to see if you need CEUs.

Will there be snacks during breaks? To keep registration costs down, we do not offer snacks. We do provide coffee at morning breaks, and cold beverages during afternoon breaks. Attendees can also eat light appetizers at the Thursday evening reception, and enjoy a sit-down luncheon on Saturday.

Can I register on site? Yes, but please register in advance if possible. Pre-registration helps us prepare properly.

Can I schedule a special meeting during the conference? Yes. Check with NACAC about availability before June 1. We assign rooms on a first-come, first-served basis.

Will there be a program for children and youth? There is no children's program this year.

Can I bring my child to a workshop? Because children have the potential to be disruptive, we ask that you do not bring them to conference sessions.
