Important Updates Regarding NCEA National Conference in April - PLEASE READ AND RESPOND by Friday, Feb 22nd

The principals learned on Thursday that the NCEA Conference in April will be one of the most attended conferences in decades. They are expecting anywhere between 9,000-10,000 attendees. They also suggested that we should provide some other transportation options for employees as McCormick Place has about 6000 parking spaces. Parking will be at a premium for sure. Also, we are not in the position to cover everyone’s parking or Uber/Lyft rides. So, instead, we are offering to charter a school bus to and from McCormick Place on Tuesday and Wednesday. If you think you would like to take advantage of this transportation option, please indicate this in the survey below. I don’t want to wait to charter the bus or buses, so please complete by Friday, Feb 22nd. Please use the link below. For your convenience, I also put the link to a PDF of the preliminary conference program.
