Guide for First Time Attendees

Congratulations on deciding to attend NACEP’s National Conference for the first time! The National Conference is one of the best opportunities for professionals to learn the latest trends and meet many different colleagues in dual enrollment. Here are a few things you may want to think about when attending for the first time.
