NPC17 Program: 2017 National Planning Conference
There are two types of activities at NPC17 and you sign up in different ways. Learn More
Ticketed Activities: Activities with a green "Ticket Required" button require a ticket which YOU MUST “purchase” to attend—even if it’s free. Purchase your ticket, add it to your cart, and continue through the purchasing process to confirm your space in that activity. Be sure to double check that you haven’t left something in your cart!
Non-Ticketed Activities: Activities with a Schedule or Schedule button are included in your registration fee and are first-come, first-seated. No spaces are reserved for these activities, so don’t be late. Adding these non-ticketed activities to My Schedule is for your reference only.
This reception will be hosted at Ascent Lounge. It is invite only.

When you're at a big conference, it always helps to have friends around. Make some fast at the First-Timer Mixer. Whether you're coming to NPC for the first time or coming back after a few years away, stop on by. Cash bar available. Your free ticket is an RSVP so we know to expect you.
