If You Registered Before The Move To Virtual

If I already registered, do I need to do anything?

No, you will be automatically granted access to the Virtual Conference. Instructions will follow as we get closer to the event.


Can I get a refund if I paid for extra meals?

Yes, and you don’t need to do anything. We will take care of it on your behalf.


What about my hotel room? Do I need to cancel that?

Nope. Our contract has been cancelled and housing will be canceled on your behalf.


If I already registered for the conference, how do I cancel my registration?

We updated our cancellation policy to be more flexible for you. If you wish to cancel, please send your cancellation request to registrations@awsp.org. Be sure to include the first and last name of all registrants you wish to cancel. We will process cancellations as quickly as we can. Please allow 7-10 business days for refunds to be processed if you paid by credit card. There is no charge for conference cancellations made by 4 p.m. on Friday, June 26. All cancellations made after that time will be charged the full amount.




Registration/Cancellation 

Can I use iGrants 664 "TPEP" funds to pay for registration?

Yes! Every year, districts send hundreds of thousands of dollars back to OSPI (which in turn, gets sent back to the state). You can use these funds to register your whole team for Summer Conference! 


What are iGrants 664 “TPEP” funds?

Not sure what iGrants 664 "TPEP" funds are or how to use them? Find out who your district's grant administrator is and work with them to see if your district has money left for registrations.


Have dates for registration or cancellation changed?

Great news! You can register up until the day of the conference.

We updated our cancellation policy to be more flexible for you. If you wish to cancel, please send your cancellation request to registrations@awsp.org. Be sure to include the first and last name of all registrants you wish to cancel. We will process cancellations as quickly as we can. Please allow 7-10 business days for refunds to be processed if you paid by credit card. There is no charge for conference cancellations made by 4 p.m. on Friday, June 26. All cancellations made after that time will be charged the full amount.


If I’m registered for this year, can I roll over registration instead of canceling?

Unfortunately, this isn’t an option due to too many technical hurdles. Your options are canceling and getting a refund or still attending the amazing conference we have planned.




General

Why is the pricing the same?

One word: value. We will still produce an amazing conference with the same amazing lineup of keynote speakers. When attending in person, conference attendees can only attend 5 sessions. Now, you'll have access to over 60 breakout sessions, all available to you year-round.  


What's the benefit of this conference?

Learning from national experts and your in-state peers – that hasn't changed! What has changed is individuals and districts won't pay any travel and housing costs. Combine that with the ability to use TPEP iGrant 664 funds, and it's easier than ever to register your entire district leadership team.


Will content be presented live or pre-recorded?

Both. We’ll have keynote sessions happening live. We’ll have the opportunity to interact with presenters with live Q&A. In addition, our breakout sessions will be recorded and live in our new AWSP Learning Management System (LMS). Presenters will have the option to schedule live events to supplement their presentations.



Exhibitors/Vendors/Business Partners

What are my sponsorship options now?

We are working to determine what needs our exhibitors and sponsors have. We will revise our options to try and fit those needs. If you are a current exhibitor or sponsor, be on the lookout for an email from Macy Bruhy detailing the changes. If you are interested in exhibiting or sponsoring, please keep checking the exhibitors page for updates.



Preconferences

Are the TPEP Framework Trainings still happening?

Framework trainings are canceled and refunds will be issued. The trainings will eventually be rescheduled. Check the TPEP Trainings page for updates.


What about the other preconference sessions?

We’re hoping to still offer these in some capacity. Hang tight for now.
