Convention Advertising Rates 2017–2018

NASP’s annual convention is the largest meeting of school psychologists in the world. The 2017 convention held in San Antonio, TX was a huge success, bringing in over 4,600 attendees. The 2018 NASP convention centered on the theme “Power of One,” will be held in Chicago, IL, February 13–16, 2018, and is expected to attract more than 5,000 attendees. The Preliminary Convention Program is mailed to over 26,000 potential attendees. It highlights meetings, workshops, keynote speakers, special events, and sessions offered during the 4-day convention.
