What's New? - Q&A

This year's conference was reimagined to give you the training you want while keeping you safe. Check out the questions and answers below to learn more about how the NASFAA 2021 national conference will be different than conferences in years past.

How many people will attend the on-site event?

We are aiming for a much smaller number of in-person conference attendees than ever before; roughly one-third of our normal national conference attendance. NASFAA will continually evaluate registration rates, in conjunction with considerations for events and gatherings from the Centers for Disease Control and Protection (CDC) and the Gaylord National Resort & Convention Center, to ensure event safety capacity thresholds.

How will NASFAA keep on-site conference attendees safe and healthy?

View our Health and Safety page.

Is there a discount for early-bird registration? 

Because we are opening conference registration later than usual, we are not offering early-bird registration; there will be one flat price, no matter when you register. 

Can a NASFAA credit balance be used to pay for registration?

Yes, if your institution or organization has a credit balance with NASFAA, there will be an opportunity to apply this to registration fees. Credit balances must be submitted or approved by the primary contact listed on your institution's membership roster in order to be applied. Learn more on our Using Your NASFAA Balance webpage

When are registration fees due?

As in previous years, all registration fees must be submitted before the first day of the event. 

Where can I view my registration confirmation and invoice?

Visit the myNASFAA Transactions & Involvement tab to review registration information. "2021 National Conference" will appear at the top of the list, even if someone else completed the registration process for you. 

What is the cancellation policy?

View our Cancellation Policy.

How long is the conference?

The conference will consist of two full days of programming, rather than two full days and two half days. However, we have made every effort to maintain valuable content. Though the conference is shorter, there will only be one fewer concurrent interest session time slot than in years prior. As in years past, two NASFAA U courses, as well as a diversity-focused training event, will be offered the day preceding the conference.

Is there a livestreaming registration option?

No streaming option will be available this year. However, NASFAA is committed to ensuring those who aren't able or don't feel comfortable traveling and attending in person still have the opportunity to benefit from the valuable training offered at the conference. As such, we will be recording six interest sessions, which will be made available after the on-site conference has concluded. Each of these NASFAA 2021 Conference Retrospectives will be broadcast at pre-established dates and accompanied by a live Q&A with NASFAA staff. This will allow registrants to receive answers in real time to their questions about content presented in the recorded sessions.
