For the first time in our 21-year history, NGLA is offering a Virtual Experience as well as an In-Person Experience.

As the world around us continues to evolve, so does our approach to meeting the needs of our communities across the Northeast and beyond. NGLA offers an educational experience that provides our fraternal leaders with inspiration, hope, and vision to navigate our world. In June 2021, NGLA announced the decision to expand the format of the 2022 NGLA Annual Conference.

Join us February 19 for an afternoon of virtual peer-to-peer learning and programming supported by Greek University as well as February 24 - 27 in Baltimore for our signature experience. Learn more about programs offered through our Schedule of EventsRegistration closes February 18, 2022. Registration is not available on or after February 19.

More information about each experience is shared often! To ensure that you don’t miss an announcement, please subscribe to our newsletter and follow NGLA on FacebookInstagram, and Twitter. Past newsletters and communications are also available by visiting our News Archive.

With the unique style of the 2022 NGLA Annual Conference, we would like to address questions and concerns that are likely top-of-mind.

 

IN-PERSON EXPERIENCE | Health & Safety Policy

Our team continues to evaluate our policies regularly to ensure compliance with public health mandates and recommendations. Together, we can all create an enjoyable experience centered on education and community building by following our Health & Safety Guidelines and Code of Conduct. This means completing verification before attending, wearing a well-fit approved mask throughout the event, and practicing proper personal hygiene.

Be sure to check our Health & Safety Information often for the most up-to-date information about what is required in order to attend the In-Person Experience of the 2022 NGLA Annual Conference and what to expect during the event.

Attendance Verification for In-Person Experience

 

IN-PERSON EXPERIENCE | Registration Policy Amendment

On January 26, NGLA amended our registration policy for this year only to account for unanticipated changes in institutional policy and meet our community’s needs to the best of our ability. If a change to your institution’s travel policy prohibits attendance at the In-Person Experience of the 2022 NGLA Annual Conference after the purchase of registration, the person/group may request a partial refund OR a full credit of the amount paid for the 2023 NGLA Annual Conference. The travel policy must be shared with NGLA to be eligible for a refund or credit. If switching from the In-Person Experience to a Virtual Experience is not due to a change of your institution’s policy then there will be no adjustment of the registration fee.
