2021-22 Regional Conferences Summary

In October of 2021, 225 participants from 16 states registered for our Western Regional Conference.  The Central Regional Conference, held in December 2021, attracted 63 registrants from 10 states.  Our NRCP Eastern Regional Conference had 134 participants from 20 states, including Bermuda.  

In total, 421 participants from 33 states across the nation registered for all three conferences. Over 87% of participants, 372, were paraeducators. These conferences were designed with the hope and intention of having a large representation of paraeducators in attendance to receive first hand instruction and training.

Overall, we received overwhelming positive feedback (Visit each link to see more feedback on the conferences: Western, Central, Eastern ). To improve future offerings some participants noted that the evening hours were the most challenging aspect of the conferences, while others preferred it. We will be considering that and other feedback as we plan future conferences. Participants also indicated specific topics of interest they would like addressed in future NRCP trainings. Ideas such as Autism, behavior, leadership support and many others were shared. We hope to use these suggestions to offer more trainings on a wide variety of topics. Your opinion is very important to us, please take a moment to let us know what trainings you would like to see by visiting here.
