NEW REGISTRATION PROCESS

NEA is using is a new process for RA registration this year called CVENT FOR REGISTRATION. The NEA will NOT be mailing your delegate credentials form via US Mail this year.  All credential information will be emailed.  An invite email will be sent to you around June 1st, instructing you to follow a link within the email, to register for the NEA RA. You must register using the link in order to check-in at the RA. Once you register, a confirmation/credential email will be automatically sent to you.  Please check your personal email account the first week of June. Bottom-line: Don’t look for any paper to be mailed to you from NEA; keep a lookout for NEA’s emails to you instead.
