2020 NATA Virtual Fall Conference

to
43 people attending

Welcome to the Nebraska Art Teachers Association's 2020 Fall Conference! We are thrilled that you are here!

 
This virtual experience is a first for our state organization and takes the place of our annual gathering. But fear not! We have planned the best professional development in the state, as well as included all the components that we love to share…inspiring keynotes by Dr. James Rolling, Jr., the President Elect of NAEA and Gary Taxali, an acclaimed contemporary artist and illustrator , as well as teacher-to-teacher training, hands-on workshops, awards celebration, art educator’s exhibit, silent auction, vendors expo, networking, and more! Opportunities abound and we are eager to get started!
 
Important registration information:
  • Teachers are highly encouraged to register themselves (instead of through a district representative) as the Hopin platform will require you to create a Hopin account before payment.
  • Only credit card payments are accepted (VISA, Mastercard, American Express).  
  • Hopin will email you a non-detailed receipt. Click here, if you need detailed documentation to turn in to your institution for reimbursement.
  • Since all keynotes and presentations are recorded and accessible indefinitely post-conference, NATA is not accepting cancellations.
  • Questions? Contact Laura Huntimer at [email protected]
 
Use the schedule and booth tabs above to see more conference details. Booths contain many components including vendors and our silent auction with more features being added as the conference draws closer!
 
The NATA Fall Conference Board meeting will be held Thursday, Oct. 15th from 7 - 9 pm.  Board members will be contacted by the president about that meeting.  The board meeting will not be held on Hopin and does not appear in the Hopin conference schedule.
 
Lastly, we want to thank our fearless leader, NATA President Bill Cavill, for the opportunity to lead this extraordinary team on this maiden voyage! Here’s to a fun, educational, innovative, and vital weekend of learning and growing!
