  • Why Attend PPI?

COVID-19 Update

The health and safety of our attendees is our primary concern. At this time, it is difficult to predict whether normal travel will resume in time to conduct the Public Policy Institute. Although we hope to hold PPI in July, we have delayed opening registration until at least April 15. Please check back at that time. We strongly urge you to delay making travel arrangements (or check the airline ticket and hotel cancellation policies) until a final determination has been made.

If you have questions, contact Caden Fabbi ( or 301-347-1647).

NASP's Public Policy Institute (PPI) offers an intensive learning experience that helps build foundational knowledge of education public policy and grassroots advocacy skills.

Presenters include national leaders working in federal education and human service offices, Congressional committees and offices, research institutions, professional associations, and student-development organizations. Participants engage in reflective discussion, interactive activities, and enjoy a hands-on experience advocating on Capitol Hill.

This program is an excellent opportunity for graduate students, school psychologists, school counselors, teachers, principals, and others committed to promoting healthy and successful students and schools.
