We are dedicated to making the NRPA Annual Conference a respectful, safe and inclusive experience for everyone.


The NRPA Annual Conference is ADA friendly. If you have accessibility or special accommodation needs, please let us know in advance.

Food Accommodations

NRPA strives to create a safe and inclusive conference for all attendees. In order for us to better accommodate everyone, we include a question about food allergies, religious, and/or dietary preferences in our registration process. The answers help guide our selected food options.

Restroom Policy

You are welcome to use the restroom where you're most comfortable. All gender restrooms and single-occupancy restrooms will also be available.

Gender Pronoun Ribbons

You have the option to sport your personal gender pronoun on your conference badge. You can pick up a pronoun ribbon near the registration area at the Baltimore Convention Center. Learn more about the gender pronoun ribbons.

Mother’s Room*

If you need a private place to pump or breastfeed, we will have a mother’s room set up in the Baltimore Convention Center. For access to this room, please visit the Volunteer Room in Meeting Room 332. Location information is available in the Conference App, NRPA Events, and the onsite pocket guide.
