Please Note: Registration is open to people who hold NAAAP active memberships only. Your account is based on the email you used to register with your chapter. National Admin may need to use their chapter credentials that pre-date having a national email. If your chapter has not updated your membership status to be active/live, please email: NLA@naaap.org with your name, ticket type (Rookie, Early Bird Member, Regular Member) and chapter. Together we can address the problem.
