About the Conference

Return to main page

The virtual conference will be held with live sessions conducted using Zoom video conferencing, and plenary sessions simulcast to YouTube as well as recorded for later viewing.

The virtual conference will take place from October 12-16, and the scheduled times vary throughout the week in order to make it possible for a maximum number of people to participate.

There is no additional cost to attend the conference, although attendees must have an active GLPA membership ($20 or $10).

About the Conference "Goody Box"

The first 200 delegates registered in the U.S. before September 28 will receive a box of conference materials (hopefully) before October 12. This conference 'goody box' is meant to stand in for the ubiquitous tote bag. In addition to conference notes and swag from some of our education partners, sponsors are being asked to provide 2D and 3D items to be included as well. Who knows what surprises await inside?

ALL delegates are invited to submit something representative of their institution to go in the conference goody box. This could be a brochure, sticker, poster, patch, or some other treat you would like to share or receive at a conference. Be creative. Have fun. Keep it classy.

Note, 200 boxes will be prepared, meaning we need 200 items from you. Materials to be included in the goody box must be received NO LATER than 9-29-20. If you miss the deadline you miss out on this benefit. If you are sending something for the box, please send email to KristineMcCall@triton.edu in advance with a description and photo of your submission so we can prepare for packing.

Conference materials should be shipped to:

Kris McCall - GLPA Conference
c/o Cernan Earth and Space Center
2000 5th Avenue
River Grove, IL 60171

If you have questions or need clarification, please do not hesitate to ask via KristineMcCall@triton.edu.
