2021 NRPA Virtual Directors School Schedule

Year One Agenda

Year Two Agenda


Access to Courses

Virtual Directors School will be delivered via Zoom. Review Zoom’s system requirements and download the latest version here. A webcam is not required to join Virtual Directors School. Attendees without webcam video will still be able to listen and speak during the courses and to view the video of other participants.


Course Evaluations

As an attendee, you represent professionals in the industry and are qualified to offer constructive criticism of the topics, their contents, presentations and value to the school. To encourage that, you will be asked to complete an evaluation questionnaire for each course. The evaluation is a useful tool used by the instructors, to determine any changes that may be required in the future. The evaluation forms can be found in the online learning dashboard where you access courses.


Directors School on NRPA Connect

As a registered attendee, you’ve been added to the Directors School community on NRPA Connect. There, you can view course presentations and handouts (uploaded throughout the week) and message other attendees at the school. You can access the group under “My Communities” on NRPA Connect.

Attendance Policy

Course attendance is mandatory for completion of Directors School, unless otherwise noted. Courses will be recorded and will be available for students to access after the original delivery. NRPA will track live attendance and views of the recorded courses.


Cancellation Policy

A fee of $100 will be charged for cancellations up to 30 days prior to the school. No refunds will be offered for cancellation requests within 30 days of the beginning of the school.


If you have any questions, please reach out to NRPA Senior Education Manager Kelly Moffett at kmoffett@nrpa.org.
