The NASDPTS Annual Conference is the Association’s premier event of the year, providing unmatched opportunities for members to hear the latest information on the school transportation industry. Coupled with our vendor tabletop displays, group dinners and keynote speakers on the hottest topics in the industry, this Conference is not to be missed.
A detailed agenda will be posted shortly. Click on the button below to view our at-a-glance conference agenda.
Hosting the conference at the Nation’s Capital allows us to meet in-person with our federal partners. Invited agencies presenting include the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB), the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA), the Transportation Security Administration (TSA), the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and the U.S. Education Department (USDOE), among others. The conference will also feature technology updates from our industry suppliers, to include electric buses, and discussions by state directors on the top issues of the day to include: the driver shortage, alternative transportation, and electric and propane school buses.
Additionally, our Supplier Council Members will be displaying information and products during our Supplier Showcase, a tabletop exhibit meant to bring members and sellers together to share industry products and experiences.
