Save the date for the 2021 PAEA Education Forum

Building off the success of last year’s event, PAEA is pleased to announce the 2021 Education Forum will once again take place virtually, from October 11-15, 2021.

When planning programming and events, we continually return to PAEA’s vision of “Health for all.” After reviewing hundreds of members’ feedback in our February Education Forum survey, assessing the current health landscape, and considering local, state, and CDC in-person event guidelines, it became clear that returning to a virtual format would allow us to keep our members safe while providing the best experience possible.  

In 2020, our first virtual Education Forum was our largest ever event with a record 1,500+ attendees. Allowing members to attend the Forum virtually expanded access to professional development programming and networking to more PA educators, staff, and administrators than ever before. 

Our decision to return to a virtual Forum again this year is also based on our sensitivity to the financial effects that the pandemic continues to have on our member programs and their travel budgets. PAEA is committed to doing all that we can to provide members with access to high-quality professional development without additional burdens and barriers. That’s why we are pleased to announce that the cost of registration will remain at the same level as last year, $290 for individuals. We will also offer the same discounted rates for programs that choose to do group registrations for faculty and staff. 

Whether we meet in person or virtually, gathering and learning together remains essential. We certainly miss connecting with you, our members, in person and look forward to reuniting when it is safe to do so. Until then, we are working diligently to design an experience that will provide the innovative and inspirational education programming, and the community and camaraderie that define this event.  

We can’t wait to share more information about the virtual 2021 PAEA Education Forum in the weeks and months to come!
