NRPA Live!

August 1, 2017, Department, by NRPA

Calendar 410

The 2017 NRPA Annual Conference is rapidly approaching and, while we would love for everyone to attend in-person, we understand that is not always an option. NRPA is proud to present an alternative method for attending: NRPA Live! This year, NRPA will be streaming 10 full education sessions and three speed sessions from New Orleans. This is your or your agency’s opportunity to virtually attend a curated set of sessions streamed live. Each session allows for direct interaction with the speakers through a live-chat, continued access to the session archive and resources, and the opportunity to gain up to 1.1 CEUs.

Registrants have the option of attending the entire three days of education sessions, a single day of education events or register for individual sessions. For more information and a list of the streamed sessions, click here.
