Enrollment in individual workshops necessary

With few exceptions, attending the NJEA Convention for the last 76 years has been a matter of arranging transportation. Access to the convention and workshops did not generally require you to register in advance. But because this year the convention is remote, registration for the convention is necessary for proof of attendance. Enrollment in workshops is necessary to receive credit for any workshops you attend.

What remains true for the NJEA Convention, whether online or in person, is that it is a benefit of membership. There is no charge to attend the NJEA Convention.

How do I register for the NJEA Convention?

Register below. You will need:

  • An email address.
  • Your NJEA personal identification number (PIN). You’ll find your PIN on your membership card. Your PIN has six characters in a two-letter, two-number, two-letter combination.

What is my PIN?

You can find your PIN by logging onto njea.org with the email address you have on file with NJEA and your password.

  • Go to njea.org and click on “Sign-in” in the upper-right-hand corner.
  • Enter your email address and password as directed. Your default password, unless you’ve changed it, is the last four digits of your Social Security number.
  • Once you have successfully logged on, slide over to “My NJEA” and click on “Profile.”
  • As you scroll down, you’ll see your membership card on the right-hand side. Your PIN is under your name.

What level of access does registration get me?

Registration for the convention grants you access to:

  • The REAL Block Party/Welcome Reception
    • Nov. 4: 7-8:30 p.m.
  • The Virtual Exhibit Hall
    • Nov. 4: 3-7 p.m.
    • Nov. 5: 9 a.m.-5 p.m.
    • Nov. 6: 9 a.m.-3 p.m.
  • Keynote address from Ruby Bridges
    • Nov. 6: 3:45-5 p.m.

To attend professional development workshops, you must enroll separately.

How do I enroll in the professional development workshops?

After you register, within two weeks, you will receive an email taking you to the enrollment process for workshops. Be sure to check any spam folders. As the convention approaches, the email will come more quickly. To plan ahead, see the Convention Program for all workshop times, subject areas and titles.

How will I get my certificate of attendance?

You must log in to the NJEA Convention on Nov. 5 or Nov. 6. The following morning your certificate of attendance will be available for download. You will need the confirmation number from your registration email or your email address to download. No certificates of attendance will be available for attendance on Wednesday afternoon in the Exhibit Hall or at the REAL Block Party/Welcome Reception.
