NASDPTS 54th Annual Conference
October 27 - 31, 2022 at The Ritz-Carlton Pentagon City Hotel
Hosting the conference at the Nation’s Capital allows us to meet in-person with our federal partners. Agencies invited to present 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 best practices training by other presenters. Conference workshop topics will focus on addressing the driver shortage, illegal passing, entry-level driver training (ELDT) successes, IDEA Transportation Requirements, Transporting Students Experiencing Homelessness and many others. New State Directors will participate in a New State Director of Pupil Transportation Orientation event which will include information on what resources are available in order to help in his/her state governance.
Additionally, each of our Supplier Council Members will be displaying its products during our Supplier Showcase, a tabletop exhibit meant to bring members and sellers together to share industry products and experiences.
Never attended a NASDPTS Annual Conference? We will have a special First Time Attendee Orientation session for you on the first day of the Conference, then introduce you to Conference Helpers who will make sure you receive the full conference experience.
Additional conference details will be posted as workshops are confirmed.
