Speaker Registration and Scholarship Information
All program chairs, moderators and speakers must register for the Convention. Program chairs, moderators, and speakers will receive complimentary registration for the day of their speaking engagement only if they do not plan to attend any other days of the Convention; otherwise, program chairs, moderators and speakers will need to pay the full registration fee.
NAPABA does not cover travel or expenses for speakers. We encourage all speakers to apply for a Convention scholarship (opening in June). Convention scholarships may be used for registration, airfare, or ground transportation.
Please direct inquiries to Pang Moua, NAPABA Meetings Coordinator.
