Live Stream the Top Sessions from Baltimore

Can’t make it to Baltimore for the 2019 NRPA Annual Conference? NRPA Live is the virtual version of the conference that allows you to stream and participate in some of the top conference education sessions from the comfort of your own home or office. This September 24–26, we are live streaming nine full education sessions and five speed sessions from the NRPA Annual Conference. Each NRPA Live session allows for real-time interaction with the speakers, continued access to the session archives and other conference-related content, and the opportunity to earn CEUs. Virtual attendees will also be able to access exclusive live content between sessions. Following the conference, 18 recorded sessions and 10 speed sessions from the conference will be available for streaming.
