Register here for our 2018 National Conference!

Policies & Logistics

We desire to provide the best adult learning experiences for all participants. If you know that you will not be able to stay for the whole professional development offering, please arrange to take it at another time. The success and spirit of our professional development experiences depend on full participation. Late arrivals or early departures interrupt the opportunity to build and sustain a cohesive institute culture and nurture growth in adult learning.

Visit the EL Education website for registration information for all events. If you have questions about registration, please contact Nicole Graziano, Client Services Manager, at or call 413-362-3068.


For Professional Development events occurring between September 1, 2018 and May 31, 2019, schools with signed contracts and no outstanding balances from the 2017-2018 school year may register for institutes beginning on Monday, August 13, 2018.

For PD events occurring between June 1, 2019 and August 31, 2019, schools with signed contracts and up-to-date payments may register for institutes beginning on Monday, March 11, 2019.

Confirmations are e-mailed within 48 hours after processing your registration. If you do not receive a confirmation, please contact Nicole Graziano at Please do not book nonrefundable airline tickets without confirmation that your registration has been received and processed.


Once registered, you will receive a logistics email from Nicole Graziano with details that include location, start/end times, meals that will be provided, etc. EL Education does not make travel or lodging arrangements for any event. If you are not local, you should plan to arrive the night before. Coffee/tea and lunch for all participants each day is provided, but participants will be responsible for covering all other expenses for dinner, lodging, parking, etc.

Cancellation Policy

If you cannot attend an event for which you have registered, please notify Nicole Graziano in writing at LEAST 14 calendar days before the event or the school will be charged use of a slot. Applicable slots will be deducted if cancellation occurs less than 14 calendar days before an institute, because EL  Education will not be able to fill the spot. After the 14-day timeframe, you are ineligible for a refund, but you may send a non-registered person in your place, with registration confirmation or written authorization from the school designee.

All institute slots must be used before August 31, 2019. No slots can be carried over into the next EL Education fiscal year that begins on September 1, 2019.  In the event that the school designee desires to substitute one purchased slot for another equally priced slot, s/he can do so with written permission of the EL Education Regional Director as long as the change occurs at least 14 calendar days before the purchased institute start date. Substitutions are NOT permitted if the purchased institute has already occurred or is within 14 days of occurring.

Schools also may register for EL Education events outside of contract and be invoiced later. The 14 day cancellation policy still applies.

EL Education reserves the right to cancel programs because of low registration. Minimum enrollment to avoid cancellation is 15. In the event of cancellation, EL Education will notify participants at least 10 days in advance of the event. EL Education is not responsible for cancellation charges related to travel and lodging.

Please notify EL Education at the time you register if you need a sign language interpreter or other special assistance. EL Education must be notified in writing at least 14 days in advance of the event (or sooner, if possible).
