Based on the input of NSEE members and prospective conference attendees, as well as the ambiguity surrounding the state of the COVID-19 pandemic come September, we have decided to move the 49th Annual NSEE 2020 Conference to a virtual format. The NSEE 2020 Conference Committee is carefully reviewing various options regarding the conference structure and facilitation technology. Our goal is to create a meaningful, supportive experience that fosters professional development, collaboration, and networking, just as our in-person conferences strive to do. We are particularly excited that a virtual conference will allow for greater flexibility of participation across time zones, and even more educators will have an opportunity to join our community. We will announce the conference details including information for presenters, exhibitors, and sponsors no later than July 17.
