Standing Together in a Changing Landscape:
A Call to Action

New Orleans – April 11-13, 2018

All NPEA 10th Annual Conference events will take place April 11-13, 2018, at the JW Marriott (614 Canal Street, New Orleans, LA 70130). Located in the heart of the world-famous French Quarter, the JW Marriott hotel sits right on Canal Street just steps from some of New Orleans’ most iconic nightlife and restaurants. Take a walk outside and visit Jackson Square, shop at the lively French Market, dance your way through Bourbon Street, or rediscover history at the National WWII Museum. We invite you to join us for an unforgettable experience in New Orleans at this beautiful French Quarter hotel.

NPEA is pleased to offer the discounted room block rate of $199 per night (plus taxes & fees). This discounted rate is for a limited block of rooms and will only be available until the room block is full.
