Preliminary Program - 2018 - 6

EDUCATION
The 2018 NRPA Annual Conference is packed full of inspirational and innovative education sessions and
workshops. Nearly 300 education sessions will cover a variety of tracks in an array of formats. This is
the best opportunity for park and recreation professionals to be challenged and learn from some of the
top thought leaders in the field.
Education Formats

Earn CEUs to Maintain Your Certifications

A variety of session formats allow attendees to choose
what fits their style of learning best from getting out of
their chairs to be active, spending time outside, interacting
directly with speakers and much more.

Attendees will be able to earn at least 0.1 Continuing
Education Units (CEUs) for attending most education
sessions, and have the potential to earn up to 1.7 CEUs
for 2018. To earn CEUs, attendees must attend the entire
education session. 0.1 CEUs can now be earned for
attending three Speed Sessions. Certain sessions are not
eligible for CEUs which will be indicated in the Conference
App and in the onsite pocket guide.
