What’s included with your conference registration fee?

The general registration fees for member and non-member delegates include a badge, admittance to all general sessions, conference workshops and Mobile Workshops*, the Exposition Hall, access to hotel shuttles, the Wednesday evening Welcome Reception, lunch in the Exposition Hall on Thursday and Friday, the Delegates Luncheon on Saturday and the Closing Event on Saturday evening. NLC University Seminars are not included in the registration fee; they may be added to an individual’s registration for an additional fee.

*Please note that while Mobile Workshops are included in your registration fee, they do require a separate registration to guarantee your spot as space is limited. You may add mobile workshops to your registration through the registration portal.

NLC has a special Youth Delegate Program for young people in high school. The youth delegate fee includes a conference bag, badge, admittance to all general sessions and workshops (excluding NLC University Seminars and Mobile Workshops), special youth delegate sessions, the Expo Hall, access to the hotel shuttles, the Wednesday afternoon Welcome Reception, the Delegates Luncheon on Saturday, and the Closing Event on Saturday evening.

Spouses, significant others, parents, legal guardians and children

This registration type entitles family members of fully paid delegates to the full conference, including all general sessions and social events, but excluding NLC University Seminars, Mobile Workshops or functions that require an additional ticket/fee for entry. Registration is complimentary for children ages 2-17 who are attending the conference with their parent/legal guardian. Adult members of the family, ages 18 and up, must pay a non-refundable $170 registration fee. Family/child registration is entirely separate from, and does not grant access to, the Youth Delegate Program.

Members of the media with proper credentials must register for the conference (complimentary) at the Media Registration Desk in the Conference Registration area. Most conference activities are open to the media, but some sessions will be private or closed to the media. Members of the media must wear credentials at all times.


With so many sessions, seminars, meetings, networking events and other opportunities, it is nearly impossible to take in all the conference has to offer just on your own. Consider attending with a group from your city to cover all areas and get the best return on your conference experience for your city. Groups of five or more will receive a complimentary sixth registration, provided the registrations are paid in full. To receive the group incentive, all individuals must register at the same time. The group incentive does not apply to Youth Delegate registration.
