You must register to attend the NJEA Convention.
Admission to most in-person sessions is on a first-come basis. Once the room has reached capacity, no additional attendees will be admitted. Be advised you should plan to arrive to your session room at least 10 minutes prior to the scheduled start time. The following in-person sessions are the only ones that require pre-registration: Google Boot Camp and Goat Yoga.
Once you have registered, you can add sessions to your calendar using the CVENT events app to plan your convention experience.
In-person admission, registration & workshops
How do I register for the in-person convention?
Registering in advance for the NJEA Convention will speed your entry.
You will need:
• An email address.
• Your NJEA personal identification number (PIN). You’ll find your PIN on your membership card. Your PIN has six characters in a two letter-two number-two letter combination.
After you register, you will receive a follow-up email with additional information. Note that in-person registrants may also attend virtual sessions. However, you will need your own device— it is recommended that you use a desktop or laptop computer, not a tablet or phone, to attend your virtual workshops.
Where do I pick up my badge for the in-person convention?
Go to the second floor of the convention center. Each morning, the first 700 members to pick up their badge will receive a $10 lunch voucher that may only be redeemed in the convention center—the limit is one voucher per member until the limit is reached, and the voucher is distributed only when you first receive your badge.
If I didn’t register in advance, can I still come?
Yes. Be sure to bring your membership card with you. Again, registering in advance is recommended to save time upon arrival at the convention center.
I did not receive my membership card. How do I gain admission?
There will be a location available at registration for members to verify their membership. Bring photo identification. You can also access an image of your membership card on your phone. Visit njea.org. After you log in, tap “Menu,” then tap “My NJEA.” (To log in, use your PIN or the email address you have registered with NJEA as your PIN. Your password is the last four digits of your Social Security number unless you’ve changed your password.)
Do I need to register for in-person workshops?
There is no pre-registration to enroll for in-person workshops. Arrive at your preferred workshop as early as possible to ensure your seat. You may wish to select a second-choice workshop if the room for your first choice reaches capacity before your arrival.
How do I register for virtual workshops?
Preregistration is required to enroll in virtual workshops and to access the keynote live streams. The workshops listed on pages 21 to 24 of the Convention Program will be presented in a virtual format. Three of the four keynote speakers, LeVar Burton, Nyle DiMarco and David Hogg, will be livestreamed for members not attending in person. Use the Register button above to register for virtual workshops.
To register you’ll need an email address and your PIN as listed on your NJEA membership card. If you do not have your NJEA membership card, see the question above, “I did not receive my membership card. How do I gain admission?’ which explains how you can find your card on the NJEA website.
After you register, you will receive a follow-up email to enroll in the workshops you select. It is recommended that you use a desktop or laptop computer, not a tablet or phone, to attend your virtual workshops.
