How to Navigate the Conference

During the pre- and post-conference periods on Thursday and Sunday, registrants attend one-day professional development workshops led by College Board-endorsed consultants. These consultants are hand-picked to make sure they deliver the best possible professional learning experience. 

During the Main Conference, registrants attend concurrent 75-minute content sessions and one-hour plenary sessions on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday.. Presenters who lead these sessions are a mix of educators from the AP and Pre-AP communities, Chief Readers from the AP Development Committee, and College Board staff. They submit session proposals that are reviewed by our steering committee and staff. Registration for the Main Conference includes admission for all receptions. Main Conference sessions are seated on a first-come, first-served basis. If a particular session interests you, get to the location early to be sure you get a seat.
