2021 NJEA Convention will be presented in-person with remote components
The NJEA Convention returns in person to Atlantic City on Nov. 4-5. The convention will also include virtual professional development sessions to enable members who wish to participate remotely yet still benefit from much of what the NJEA Convention has to offer.
Both in-person and remotely, members will have access to what has become the convention’s signature feature—professional and career development workshops and programs for every member. Keynote speaker Bill Nye will appear remotely both for in-person attendees and those attending remotely. The convention’s three in-person keynotes—Henry Louis Gates Jr., Sonia Manzano and Eric Liu—can also be attended remotely.
The massive exhibit hall, featuring Main Street NJEA, education vendors, publishers, field trip opportunities, colleges and universities, NJEA Member Benefits sponsored vendors, the Member Showcase, the Nicky Fifth series author Lisa Funari-Willever, and so much more will return for the in-person convention only.
Workshops that are presented remotely will be optimized for the virtual environment and will generally not be broadcasts of the in-person workshops. All sessions—both virtual and in person—will require pre-registration. No walk-ins will be permitted for in-person sessions in the convention center.
