In an effort to streamline and conserve resources, NGA won’t be printing Winter Meeting program booklets. Daily schedules will be available at on-site registration, but keep in mind the NGA Winter Meeting app will have all the info you need!

Through the NGA Winter Meeting app, meeting participants may access the complete schedule of events, including session times and locations, speaker biographies, maps, resource materials and additional information. The app is for registered attendees only and will be secured with a registration code unique to each individual. One week prior to the Winter Meeting a custom email will be sent which will include instructions to download the app. Be sure to open the email invitation on the device you are using at the meeting ie: your iPhone, iPad, Android phone or laptop. Please look for this email as we get closer to the meeting!
