Interested in hosting the NAEP Annual Conference and Training Symposium?

The Permanent Conference Committee (PCC) works with the NAEP Board of Directors to select host cities for annual conferences. The PCC is considering several locations for other future conferences.

Potential host cities are reviewed based on:

  • NAEP chapter activity in that area
  • Location relative to past conferences
  • Accessibility to major airports and good public transportation
  • Opportunities for fun and educational offsite tours and sightseeing
  • Relation to conference facilities, hotel options, and good local restaurants

NAEP chapter activity in that area, location relative to past conferences, points of interest in the area, accessibility to major airports, and other factors.

2023: Arizona Chapter | Phoenix, AZ
2024: Minnesota Chapter | Minneapolis, MN
2025: South Carolina Chapter | Charleston, SC
