2021 NASPA Region I Conference

Regional Annual Conferences Regions Region I



Presented By

Region 1


The 2021 Conference Committee is pleased to offer our Region I Annual Conference  in-person conference November 15-17, 2021 in Hartford, CT.  The conference committee is currently working to develop a strong conference experience for all attendees, while striving to be fiscally responsible to our members.  This may result in some changes to the traditional conference experience; however, we hope the resulting experience will be as impactful and relevant to our Region I Members’ needs as it has been in the past. More information will be coming soon regarding our call for programs, program reviewers as well as registrations. Please check back here often as we will be updating the website with the most current information.

If COVID-19 guidance changes as we move into the fall, we will update you as soon as we are able. We hope you all are excited to see one another in person in November.  We look forward to a great experience.

Group Registration

NASPA Region I is pleased to offer a group registration rate for the regional conference. Please review this information carefully before registering your group.

General Information about Group Rates:

  • Pricing is based on member registration rate for 5 professionals ($1750) or for 5 students ($750). The package allows the purchaser to register 6 students or 6 professionals for the price of 5.
  • The group registration packages must be purchased and paid for by the Sept. 27 Early Bird deadline.
  • These packages are non-refundable and are all-or-nothing (i.e.: in other words, if the purchaser ends up only registering 4 people, no partial refunds can be given).  


 To Access Group Rate Packages:

  • For purchaser, group registration products will show up by clicking on Attendee. The packages can be purchased on their own and can be purchased in multiple increments – so a purchaser can buy two student packages if they know they have 12 students to register.
  • After the package is purchased, contact the Region I conference committee with a copy of the confirmation to receive a passcode. The purchaser will then provide the passcode to the individuals to register themselves.
  • When a registrant from the group has the passcode, they should log in, click on Group Registration on the initial screen, and enter the passcode, then move through the remainder of the registration process.
  • All passcodes will be verified by each group package; therefore, the passcode you receive must only be given to those individuals in the group you are registering. 

 Questions? Please contact Region I conference committee and we will respond as soon as we are able to.

 See you in Hartford!

Call For Programs

Call For Programs

We are excited to announce that our call for programs is live! Our goal is to have sessions relevant to meet the diverse professional needs and interests of our attendees. Thus, presenters from all functional areas of student affairs and varying levels of professional experience are invited to submit a program proposal.

As you prepare your proposals, please keep the following in mind:

 In addition to our traditional presentation blocks we will also be offering research and roundtable sessions. The details of each can be found below:

  • Research Session - (50 minutes) - Region I is rich within research that informs the work and practice of student affairs and we are excited to create a session where the research of members will be presented with opportunities for Q & A. Two research topics will be presented during each session.

  • Roundtable Session - (45 minutes) - These sessions will be open dialogue about specific functional areas or topics that affect the work of student affairs professionals.  Members interested in co-facilitating a dialogue about a specific topic should apply for this session type!

Programs will be evaluated on the following criteria:

  • Relevance to the Vision of NASPA, the Competency Areas, and the Conference Purpose

  • Development of content, including evidence of planning and organization

  • Clearly stated objectives and outcomes

  • Contribution to the knowledge and practice of student affairs/relevance to the field

  • Evidence of participant engagement

  • Learning/take away for participants

  • Program style (workshop, panel, roundtable, research lecture, etc.)

Additionally, while we recognized the impact that Covid-19 had on each of us as higher education professionals, our goal is to use this year’s conference to begin moving forward and refocus our efforts. We will offer several Covid-19 specific programming blocks but our hope is to not make this the main theme of the conference.

The deadline for proposals is September 10, 2021.  To submit a program please click here.

Should you have any questions about the program proposal process, please contact Jessica Eckstrom, Programs Chair, at jeckstrom@annamaria.edu.
