NJPSA/FEA/NJASCD Fall Conference Replaced by Free Half-Day Celebration of Your Resilience With “Sully,” Gov. Murphy, and More
We understand. We’ve listened, and, true to our mission, we want to help to provide you with the services, support, and programs you need as New Jersey’s top educational leaders. As many of you are opening school buildings and shifting across learning environments, we know that devoting three consecutive days to professional learning may not be possible at this critical juncture.
As a result, it is with great regret that we announce that the NJPSA/FEA/NJASCD Fall Conference, scheduled for October 14 – 16, has been canceled, so that you can focus your efforts on your school and district needs. At the same time, we believe it is important that you take this opportunity to pause, reflect, and celebrate your leadership.
Therefore, we are pleased to invite you to be our guest for a very special, inspiring, free virtual program on the morning of Friday, October 16, where Captain “Sully” Sullenberger and Governor Phil Murphy will join us to celebrate our resilience and leadership and help us honor your colleagues, the 2020 Visionary Award winners.
All attendees will receive Captain Sullenberger’s book Making a Difference: Stories of Vision and Courage from America’s Leaders.
If you have already registered for the Fall Conference, your registration will transfer to this new Friday event. If you have not yet registered, please register here. Those who already paid the conference fee will be refunded. All purchase orders will be discarded.

More details on the 2021 Fall Conference will be available in the near future.
