Up-To-Date Event Information

How does an In-Person/Virtual Conference Work?

ATN heard from our attendees that there was interest for both an in-person and virtual conferences.  We have structured both a virtual and an in-person Conference during our conference week.  Keynotes will be different.  There might be some overlap of sessions but these are 2 separate Conferences.

ATN has a Pre-Con for 2022!

ATN is providing a Pre Conference Day on Sunday, Feb 20, 2022 for our In-Person Conference.

Purchase Orders- important information

    • ATN invites schools and other institutions to reach out to us regarding purchase orders.
    • We strongly prefer prepayment of purchase orders. 
    • If your institution cannot prepay on a purchase order (have full payment made, with cash/check/card) prior to the Conference, please contact us and let us know that.  We can then determine whether we can accept your purchase order. 
    • If any portion of the Conference fills to capacity, preference will be given to fully paid Purchase Orders over post-event payments.
    • UPDATE YOUR VENDOR RECORDS-  ATN has a new address for remittances.  This was used last year but many school systems did not update our information in their records.  We cannot be responsible for payments sent to any address besides the one below.  We will only accept payments sent to this address.
